Brittany's Baby Booties

These little baby booties were finished just in time to give them to the expectant mother before she left for her maternity leave. I bound off at 10:30 the night before and took these pictures outside of my work in the morning!

The pattern is Christine's Stay-On Baby Booties (ravelry link here). I knit them out of a partial skein of Martha's Vineyard/Hudson Valley Fiber Farm (now called Juniper Moon Farm) sock yarn and crocheted the ties out of a bit of ultra alpaca. Link to my project on Ravelry here.

From what I can tell, they will definitely stay-on as advertised and will hopefully stretch enough to keep their little one's feet warm all through the coming winter.

The pattern was fun to knit with a little bit of knitting flat, in the round, picking up stitches, knitting, purling, short rows, k2togs, yarnovers...these little booties were action packed!
