Another hectic week done – and January almost done, as well. I set aside my West Coast socks and decided to try some baby booties:
I looked at many patterns and ideas on Ravelry, but these seem to be a good standard. They are the Christine’s Stay-on Baby Booties. I found another interpretation of the pattern here. I looked at my sock yarn and found a nice, gender neutral turquoisey blue with a hint of green. This is Knit Picks Stroll Tonal in “blue yonder”. This is a sock yarn, but the wool portion is merino, so it should be soft and gentle for a baby.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to knit for the past couple of nights, other things to do. I’m going to switch a load of laundry, then pick them up. They shouldn’t take long – they’re very tiny! I think I will do a ribbed leg on them instead of the eyelet and i-cord (both for speed and for ease of use in putting on/taking off). I will also do a quick sock yarn hat to match.
