Cold Little Feet June 11, 2009

Posted by hollyspinner in Knitting.

I went to the Library yesterday so the daughter could get some summer reading.  I dressed the little guy in pants with bare feet as I thought it was warm outside, but not warm enough as his feet got cold.

Inspired by his little freezing feet I went in search of a bootie/sock knitting pattern and found Knitting for Baby by Melanie Falick and Kristin Nicholas.  Fabulous book, by the way, definitely going on my wish list.  There were two, yes two, bootie patterns, including the intregingly named pattern Stay on Baby Booties, as so many things don’t.  I started with the beginner booties.  They looked super easy with garter stitch back and forth then sewn up at the end.

I am just using some stash yarn left over from other projects.  I should be finshed soon, then my little guy will have much warmer feet.
