FO: Baby Booties

You remember yesterday’s post? Today I am showing you yet another pair booties, this one also for Luke’s teacher’s little man.

As he was a late Summer/early Autumn baby I knitted these in DROPS Muskat, a cotton yarn. Also, as I didn’t know he would be a he I pickedĀ a nice neutral yellow.

And the buttons are from my stash, but once upon a time I bough them from TextileGarden. I know I’ve said it before, but they are my go-to place for buttons, as they have a fantastic range.

You all know by now that this is the brilliant Saartjes Bootees pattern. Although I have changed it slightly, having knitted sooooo many pairs of them.

FO Friday: Baby Booties on a Gorgeous Baby

My best Friend had her second child recently, a little girl. I knew that I wanted to knit her something really special (more on that another time). It was during the Christmas rush that I wanted to get something done so I opted for the trusted Saartjes Bootees and a baby bonnet from Garnstudio.

KMB 72As most of you know I LOVE Sartjees Bootees, they’re just so amazingly simple and quick. I can knit up a pair in a couple of hours. I actually knit the last few rows a little differently and I guess I should get in touch with Saartje to tell her. I take my pick of wool or cotton depending on which season the baby is likely to wear them. This pair was made from DROPS Merino Extra Fine.

And the bonnet is another favourite of mine. It’s really quickly knit up and I like how it looks when it is finished and when it’s being work. The back especially is really pretty in my opinion. I had to do a two coloured bonnet as I ran out of yarn of either colour, but I actually like the two colours together, I think they look nice and feminine, but not too girly.

 

My friend loves the booties and her gorgeous little girl wore them at her first proper photo shoot and doesn’t she just look absolutely adorable in them? I can’t wait to cuddle her soon, she’s just so cute.
