I absolutely love sock yarn, if your a knitter it’s just so hard to stear clear of those verigated balls of yarn. The only down side to knitting up pair of socks is that tiny left over ball of yarn. Too small to start a new project, too big to throw out. Eventually you end up with a knitting basket full of odds and ends and that’s why these are the best booties.
A few years ago Debbie Bliss put this bootie pattern in her magazine and ever since I’ve been loving this patern so much I’ve memorized it!
They require the exact amount of wool you have left from knitting a pair of socks plus they stay on babies feet. I didn’t realize what a problem that was until I had my little adventure boy, nothing stayed on his feet but these.
The pattern is currently published in this Debbie Bliss Pattern Book and if your into baby knits it’s worth picking up.
My favourite free site for knitting is Ravelry hands down. Whenever I’m looking for new knitting inspiration I peruse the free patterns. If your not a member I would highly recommend it.
I love these little booties and have them stock piled to give to new moms. They are the best, if your interested pick up the book or check it out of your local library.
This way you and baby can have matching footwear! Knit on & enjoy.
