Wee Wednesday: Booties

blue booties 2
I know, I know- murky indoor nighttime shots are the worst! I was too impatient to wait until the weekend. 

Pattern: Lavish Baby Booties

Yarn: Elann Peruvian Baby Cashmere (the blue ones) and Koigu painter's Palette Premium merino (yellow)

Mods: The blue ones are exactly as the pattern, but the yellow are just the stockinette version of the same pattern.

Notes: I feel like this would be much better knit in a DK weight yarn, as the 4mm needles seemed a little large for the fingering weight, but then again, I bet that gives the booties some extra stretch for when those little feet start growing quickly.

I knit the blue booties first,but wasn't sure how I felt about the garter stitch. So I experimented with the stockinette, and I think I really like both of them- for different reasons. I am planning on embroidering the yellow ones, but I was thinking of putting her name on them. So... I won't be doing that until after she's born. ;)

Oh My Goodness! These are absolutely precious! I love both pairs. And obviously you are having a sweet baby girl. When is she due? By the way ~ the pictures look good to me. All mine are indoor murky ones! Ha!

SO CUTE SO CUTE! I just had to gush on this post. Something about baby booties! Can't wait to see them in tiny baby feet!

Aww! Both pairs are adorable now, but imagine how much more adorable they're going to be with little itty-bitty feets in them!!!

You know it is a little girl? I may have missed a couple of posts... Sorry. They are absolutely gorgeous! I actually love the flower as embroidery.

These are so cute! :)

I feel the exact same about embroidering the baby's name. We've decided on her name for a long time now, but I just can't put it on before she's born.

I'm a pushover for knitted booties and yours are so sweet. The embroidered flowers add such a nice touch, and I love that you knit these in untraditional colors for your baby.

They are darling! I think adding her name to the yellow ones will be perfect!

Murky indoor shot or not, those booties are so cute!
ps: I think it's impossible for your blog to have poor photography. It's always good, even when *you* think it's murky :)

They're so cute! I don't know why I didn't knit such little booties, hmm. It must have been fun!
