Pattern: Christine’s Stay-On Baby Booties, by Christine Bourquin
Yarn: Crazy4Dyeing SlenderSock in colorway Figgy Pudding, remnants from these socks
Needles: KnitPicks US 0 circulars
Began: May 31, 2009 ; Completed: June 3, 2009 (with the i-cord just completed today, shamefully) (Raveled here).
Notes: My friend from college recently had her first baby, and I wanted to send a little something to keep his tootsies warm in the air-conditioned summer. I finished them before the move, but then the i-cord got waylaid. I’m ashamed it took me so long, but I put them in the mail today. The yarn looks rather Christmasy, I know, but I like it for this particular baby as his mom did some service work in Jamaica, so I’m trying to see the colors in that light. It works, I think. This is another great pattern, and I love the way they look with the i-cord. They used up a miniscule amount of yarn; I still have enough left for another pair, I think. Great use for sock leftovers, and such a cute FO!
I didn’t really change anything on these booties, except for making an i-cord tie rather than crocheting one, as many on Ravelry have opted to do. This pattern was really fantastic, and has a lovely back-story to it. I highly recommend it. This may be my new favorite booty pattern, and I love the way they look with the i-cord. The booties used up a miniscule amount of yarn; I still have enough left for another pair, I think.
