Saartje's Booties

March 2011

I haven't made a pair of bootees in years. When I was just learning to knit I knocked up a few pairs for friends of mine with babies, because they were so irresistibly cute and quick to make (the bootees that is, not the babies, although they were cute too...)

What eventually put me off making more of this sort of thing is that I've heard babies can be quite cunning at figuring out how to wriggle out of them, and so I'm not entirely convinced that they are as useful as the many other tiny wooly things out there just waiting to be knitted.

Be that as it may, when I finished Aubrey with so much yarn left over that it would have been rude not to make something to match I thought I'd give these a go. They were so quick and easy that I don't think I'll be too upset if they get wriggled out of...
