bootee, solo

This dang bootee is so adorable that I may never get around to knitting the second one. Why should I, if staring at just one makes me so happy?

Because the baby I'm knitting these for will most likely have two feet, hunh? Alright, alright. Number two is on the way.

Project Notes
Saartje's Bootees: One of the most popular patterns on Ravelry. While knitting it, I wasn't sure if it was a gift to humanity or an international act of aggression. It's hard to interpret in places, so a bit frustrating, but so sweet that once you start it you have to soldier through. Now that I've worked it, I have to say, viva Saartje!
Size: 4.5 inches. In terms of baby age, uh, you tell me. I figure if I start with a newborn they'll fit at some point.
