Because babies have feet too.
And because I'm totally counting weaving in ends as creative, I have decided that I am allowed to play along with Kirsty again this week.
These boots are all finished, knit-wise. The pattern couldn't have been any easier, and I can see it lending itself well to being scaled up if these boots are a success.
Rather than show you them again tomorrow when I've woven in the ends, I'm calling this a tick on the March List, and here are the (very simple)
- Yarn: Madelinetosh tosh sock (4ply) in Thyme
- Quantity: Really not very much. Maybe 20 grams? I have a lot of the 100g skein left
- Needles: 2.25mm (DPNs)
- Pattern: Christine's stay on baby bootees
- More info: on the Ravelry project page
For some reason I've rather gone off this colour since buying it, but I figure since these are baby bootees, I'll only have to look at them for a few weeks before they're outgrown. The rest of the Thyme coloured yarn will go into some striped project, I expect. Or socks - I rarely hate any yarn once it's become a pair of socks. However, I do love love love knitting with Madelinetosh sock yarn (in fact, I've liked all the Madelinetosh yarn I've tried so far, although superwash wool isn't usually my most favourite thing to knit with), so at least it's nice to knit, if not so much to admire afterwards.
