Instant Gratification

After completing the BSJ, I had tons of yarn left over. I thought a cute pair of booties to match would be just the thing. Ravelry comes through again. May I present Saartje's Bootees (rav link) for Allie:

Aren't they the cutest? Almost makes me want to have another baby. No wait, scratch that. I'm happy with my 2, happy, healthy, potty-trained, energetic boys. I've been overheard to say that if I were to get pregnant again, I'd be a wee bit unhappy about it. However - I think these booties would help take the edge off.


Yarn: BFMA STR Mediumweight in Faulty Dyer colorway
Needle: Knit Picks Options US 2
Cast On: Evening of June 11
Cast Off: Afternoon of June 12
Size: Large

I'd guess the actual knitting took maybe 2 hours. Crocheting the buttonholes & sewing on the buttons went pretty fast too. A project that was over all too soon.

I hope baby Allie likes them!
