extremely small and incredibly cute


red bootie

These are booties for my friend's new nephew. Now, you know I jump at the chance to make baby stuff. I don't even have to know the baby.

In fact, sometimes I just walk up to random pregnant women on the street and ask them if I can knit them something. Unless it's a blanket. I don't do baby blankets.

These are knit from Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere, which is some of my favorite yarn for babies, and my mom's vinatge Susan Bates aluminium needles. I have to tell you, though, after Tulip is finished, I am DONE knitting with cotton. Forever. Well, maybe until next summer.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post about knitting with cotton and my crazy gauge.

Great color and totally cute! I'm in the same boat with the cotton overload. I need to put the cotton away for the next 6 months or something.

I got this bootie pattern from a book from Filatura di Crosa called "Baby...Bebe...Bambini". The pair took maybe 2 hours collectively.
