more small things

same bootee pattern as here.  easily memorized, super portable, and addictive is what i dub these ones. i made up the hats.

i might keep one more set or the just bootees for my wee babe and the rest will be baby gifts for the next round of winter babies.

handspun addabootees and hat

so… we are having a small project knit along over in the due in april group on ravlery and these are my first finished knit. it took me a couple of bootees to figure out the sizing, but these are down sized Elizabeth Zimmermann addabootees, using size 4 needles with sportish weight yarn, but also made a bit shorter.

aren’t they so flipping adorable? i can’t get over them. on ravelry here.
a completely enjoyable knit. this new babe in my belly will only be wearing them for 2 months at most, but still. how could you not knit these? having only had a summer baby i really missed out on all the little little things, knitwise.

these are made from some handspun singles i’ve had lying around for a long while. i had enough handspun left to make a wee hat too (here on rav). and although i am notoriously not matchy matchy, i guess these might be okay since one is on his head and one is on his feet. now i’m thinking of tiny projects that i can make with other small amounts of handspun… and pondering making more pairs of bootees.
