FO: Booties

So, this is me trying to get back to posting again regularly about my finished knitting (FOs). Even though I have been quiet on that front on here doesn’t mean that I haven’t been knitting like a maniac. I have so many amazing things to show you! But for today, since it is after my bedtime (which is 10pm by the way), here are some booties that I knit for an ex-colleague back in May 2015.

Regular readers of this blog will know that this is my version of Saartjes Bootees that I have knit up several hundred times now.

The other thing I love about these booties is that I can knit them in 2 hours flat. The sewing up takes a little longer, but I can basically whip up 5 pairs of these in a weekend.

And of course they fit perfectly into the little cardboard boxes I make to present them in. The perfect gift!

FOs: Two Pairs of Booties

Friday I posted about the cardigan I made for my friends eldest daughter, since I’ve knitted a load of other things for her I will be posting them in the next few days.

Back in 2012 when my friend had her second girl she ordered two pairs of booties from me. First, my now favourite go-to bootie pattern: Saartjes Bootees.
