Easter Shoes, I mean, Booties!

A girl cannot have too many pairs of shoes, right?  Well, that also goes for baby girls and their booties, in my mind.  So, I made Makayla a pair of Easter booties.  She has lovely booties already, but what's one more pair!


Pattern:  Christine's Stay-On Baby Booties
The pattern is free, click here.
See the notes, below, for the changes I made.

Size:  I used DK yarn instead of fingering to make the booties larger than the pattern describes, but I'm not sure what the finished size is.

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
Color #340054, pink
and #340100, white
Less than a ball of each (~1/3?)
About 5 yards of Sandnes Garn Lanett in light pink, #4402, for the stripe

  Needles: US 1/ 2.25 mm double-pointed
After the foot was finished I did the following:
Knit 3 rounds in pink.
Worked eyelet round for the shoelaces.
Knit 2 rounds in pink.
Knit 1 round in white.
Worked 2x2 ribbing in white for 22 rounds.
Purl 1 round in Lanett light pink.
Work 1 round, 2x2 ribbing in Lanett light pink.
Purl 1 round in white.
Work 2 rounds in 2x2 ribbing in white.
Cast off loosely in ribbing.
The ribbing is folded in half to create a cuff.
Shoelaces: 2-stitch I-cord for 16 inches.

I'm not making a goal of 13 pairs of socks in 2013 or anything like that, but it will be interesting to see how many pairs I complete by the end of the year.  This is pair #2.
