FO Friday

I had meant to have my Mara shawl done by today, but a few other things jumped ahead of it.
Namely, this little girl:
My newest niece, giving my son a total of 9 cousins ^_^
Of course, I had to make her some cute little booties!
Here they are finished:

And modeled by the lovely lady.
Yarn: Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino
Needles: US 1, 2.5mm
Pattern: Saartje's Bootees
Mods: Used provisional cast on to graft bottom seamlessly. Used knitted cast on instead of long-tail for straps, and did the button loops in single crochet. (5 sc)

The pattern was easy to follow and produced a very cute, very quick present. But there were an awful lot of ends to weave in.

That's it for me this week. Check out more exciting FO's at Tamis Amis.


  1. Awww, so cute (the baby and the booties!)

  2. Oh isn't she just precious! Love those booties too, super cute!

  3. Awww...the cuteness!

  4. Congrats on the new family member. She's adorable and so are her booties. Must check out that pattern. Though I don't really know the differences in the various cast on methods. I only use one, cast on needle to needle. No clue what it's called.

  5. So happy to see those adorable booties on those adorable feet.

  6. Oh so adorable, she looks super-cute in those!

  7. Adorable little booties! Congratulations auntie!
