baby bootees: love of my life

What some of you don’t know about me is that I really don’t like children all that much. I cannot see myself having one, or adopting one, or otherwise sharing my life with one. It’s just not for me. But as a knitter, of course, I luuurve baby items. And I love nothing more than baby bootees. These baby bootees. I’m spelling them Debbie Bliss’s way, because it is her baby bootee (this one in particular) that almost manages to spark something in me to actually have a kidlet.

(Not really, of course. But they’re so cute!)

I’ve made them before; I gave them to my friend prior to her daughter, Nina, being born:

For those, I also made little white flowers (hard to see detail with the flash) and attached them to the cuffs. I swoon, they’re so adorable.

So I’m making more baby bootees, because they’re just that awesome. I recommend this pattern, too, from Quick Baby Knits, because they’re really fast and easy. Very little seaming (just a touch). And–have I said it enough yet–very very cute!!!

    Very, very cute. Have you seen Yarn Harlot lately? She was blogging about baby booties last week or so. Hers were from the book 50 Baby Bootees to Knit. I think you need that book! I have to say, her posts made me want to buy the book and make many pairs of tiny shoes.

    I did see the Harlot’s baby bootees, actually, tho that wasn’t my inspiration :) The book is darn tempting.

    I don’t have enough friends with babies . . .
