Ooooooh.... it's a long, long time since I have sat down and made a pair of bootees. And I honestly don't think that I have EVER crocheted a pair, so this project was quite a novelty!
This is the sole of the foot... can you just imagine the eency weency teeny weeny little footsie wootsie which is going to fit into these???? Too adorable...
But, as we all know... they GROW UP!!!
the pattern was a bit of a challenge for me - as it is written in UK terminology, and I generally only work in US terms. So there was a bit of translation going on in my head the whole time, but I got there in the end.
Now here's the surprising part...
So far I have followed the pattern EXACTLY.
Well, I changed down a hook size, but that was only because I couldn't find a 3.5mm hook (not that I don't have one, just that I couldn't FIND it)
And I didn't use baby yarn in pastelly colours, because... well... I didn't HAVE any... but I've stuck with a 5 ply yarn...
But those things don't really count, do they???
Other than that, I have followed the pattern as written.
Even all those colour changes - they are exactly as written in the pattern.
But they're not finished yet! There's embellishing to come - it says so, right there in THE PATTERN!!!
I'm off to find a tapestry needle, will have the results for you soon...
