The mad dash for baby shower gifts
Produced both booties and hat in a knitting frenzy for a last minute baby shower. The booties are fun and easy but _not_ recommended for car/movie/I don’t feel like paying attention knitting. They work up quickly, but the actual assembly/weaving in ends/ making straps is finicky work.
For my knitting buddies who’ve been asking me for this pattern, they’re Saartje’s Booties, and the link is here.
I modified it slightly because I found the booties too small, so I use the bigger bootie pattern and cast on an extra 4 stitches at the outset. The results are still newborn sized and very cute =o)
