I just got around to finishing a pair of baby bootees. I was using up scrap yarn and had already made a pair of my never-fail bootees, so I thought I'd try something new. Buttons were required, which - of course - set my finishing back by years.
I had originally picked these buttons out of my stash, but could not get my head around putting something so round on a baby. They just beg to be swallowed, don't they?
So I settled on these, which are also tiny, but somehow less threatening.
And now they are finally done. I just don't think any baby's foot I've ever encountered wouldn't slide right out of them.
KD, would your friend with an imminently-arriving daughter be willing to test them out? I'll throw in the never-fail bootees to sweeten the pot.
