So my gift knitting has been interrupted by even more gift knitting. The Henry scarf that I’m making for Christmas for my Dad has been put on hold until I knit a couple of pairs of bootees for a friend’s newborn. I don’t mind really since the bootees are absolutely the most adorable things in the world! After seeing someone at I Knit London making a pair of Saartje’s bootees, I had no choice! They’re really easy and quick to knit and only a little fiddly to sew up. I’ve even learned how to make button loops.
I’m just a little grumpy about it because Henry is taking so long. I thought I’d be able to whip it up quickly and get back to my Goddess but no such luck. At least I’ve managed to work out a method for keeping track of the pattern that means if I do make a mistake, I spot it quickly and not three rows down the line.
