This is my most recent finished project. I was trying to remember if I even had knitted booties, but I know I have never done anything like this one. They are like "boots" not a sock, which I saw lots of patterns for, They are even cuter in real life ! The pattern is Christine`s Stay-on-baby-booties. The yarn I used was from my stash, it is Cascade Fixation, which is a cotton with a small percentage of elastic. I heard that they have now discontinued this yarn, such a shame.
As you can see the booties needed a little hat to go with them. This is Rolled Brim Baby Hat very straight forward pattern. I did struggle with the sizing at the beginning. I casted on with the needle size the pattern recommend and it looked rather big for a new baby, So I went down a needle size as I seem to need to do most of the time. I decided to make a flower too, and as it turned out I couldn't find my handout for it and remembered that I had blogged about it here. Saved the day !
The gift was given to my husband's co-worker who's wife had a baby girl about a month ago. I'll ask for a picture !
If you have any babies to knit for this is such a perfect little set.
