Every now and then I go to a knitting group with some friends and it's the best place to get ideas for new things to knit. Especially as I haven't been knitting much at all lately, and haven't really been thinking about it. At the last one my friend Sarah was making the cutest booties ever, so I asked her where she found the pattern.
It's called Saartje's booties, and you can find the pattern here.
I made a little change in mine, I did the main part all in one colour, then blanket stitched in cream all around the edges. The cream was used for the loops that go around the white buttons too. I don't think I used the type of yarn the pattern called for, I just used the softest yarn I could find which was kind of fluffy but not too dense and they worked out to what seemed like a nice size.
In case you're wondering, I'm not hinting at anything, these were for my friend Jaimie's baby shower!
