As my son is now three years old, I thought it might be high time to relegate his baby booties to storage. I have a memory chest, of sorts, for special items. I’m currently still knitting my endless Hempathy sweater, and the edging ruffle is kicking my b*tt. So, as I can’t blog about that yet, I thought you might like to see these.
- Pattern: Animal Bootees by Zoë Mellor, Teddy version
- Materials: Regia Solid 4 ply, wool/nylon fingering weight, (black, grey and cream)
- Needles: Can’t remember
You can probably tell by a bit of pilling on these, that they have been well worn and well loved. I’ve made numerous pairs as gifts over the years. Each one seems to have a character of its own. However, what I especially like about them is the cuff. Active, kicking, newborn feet can’t kick these off! They stay put, keeping baby’s feet warm and toasty.
