This morning I finished these very adorable, easy to knit,
pain in the butt to sew up!! newborn baby booties to go with the newborn berry hat I made in late October.
And no, I am not expecting, just could not resist the sweetness.
The hat was my first foray into intarsia/stranding (not sure exactly which it really was, I strung the contrasting color yarn along until I needed it for the leaves….anyone?) and the only thing I can tell you is that it wasn’t as scary as it sounds. The internet is a plethora of how to’s! Just remember not to hold your contrasting color with too much tension or your knitting will pucker, and you’ll have to rip it out….and that would be terrible…
Both the lovely blue and purple yarn were found at Seaside Yarns in Juneau and are beautifully hand dyed merino cashmere made by a local Alaskan gal.
Best part about these knits, is the patterns were Free! Find the Saartjie’s Booties pattern here and the Berry Baby Hat here. If you make or have made either of these share in a comment below! Happy knitting!
