I took a break from the madness of holiday knitting to make something for a dear friend who is having her first baby in March. The sweater is still on the needles (stay tuned), but the bootees took almost no time at all. They are, however, making me broody.


They’re the cashmere bootees from Erika Knight’s Simple Knits for Cherished Babies, in Debbie Bliss’s baby cashmerino. The only adjustment I made to the pattern was doing the whole thing in stockinette rather than garter stitch for the feet. I thought it broke up the smooth look of the foot. Oh, and I added a crocheted trim in pale green to match the green and blue sweater.
