Baby Boots

I’ve been experimenting a bit with drafting some of my own patterns. This is a little pair of socks (or are they booties?) that I did. I knitted the sole first, and then picked up the stitches to knit the rest. It could use some refining, but I think they’re kind of cute!

The almost luminescent yarn is Madeline Tosh DK. It’s thicker than most DKs and really knits up as a worsted or aran weight, at least it did for me. I made a baby (toddler?) sweater out of it too, which is currently blocking.

I also want to make some dinosaur slippers and I may even felt them. With short rows you can make some really fun creative shapes with knitting – check out this stegosaurus spine in Cascade 220 sport.
