Baby Booties pt.2

Pattern is Saartje's Bootees from Saartje Knits made using Rowan RYC Cashsoft 4 ply
These booties were made two years ago for the birth of my nephew, Mitchell. I think that the two-tone colour works really well and the little buttons make them reasonably secure, and much easier to take on and off than ribbon.

The buttons offer a nice way of personalising the booties.

Grey Baby Booties

Thanks to the ongoing supply of babies by friends and colleagues, I have been working my way through various baby bootie patterns for gifts. Here are two different designs I tried for baby boys, both using grey Jaegar Matchmaker Merino DK yarn.

Going Home

Some scenes from the Underground, captured in retro glory thanks to a new iPhone programme which mimics the Hipstamatic, a plastic camera from the '70s.  Reminds me of the lost joy of Polaroids (only more discreet...).
