This is the story of how some of the hand knit items I shipped to Cliff House in the Ziploc air tight bags, Friday’s blog post, came to be.
A couple of weeks ago, my husband (Uncle Jerry) got a call from a lady who had worked with him in the past. Ultimately, she wanted to ask me if I would knit a baby blanket, cap and booties for her niece. Apparently, I had worked with her in the past, I just couldn’t remember knitting those items for another niece of hers–a lot of stitches have been made by these fingers in 5 years.
So, I made the blanket and cap; can I remember how to make booties? Yes, I can remember how to make booties! They turned out cute, and now I’m thoroughly hooked on knitting toasty toes. The booties in the photos are made from a very popular, soft alpaca yarn that we use for adult hats & scarves.
Were our feet ever this small? Curiously, a baby’s head is not very much smaller than an adult head!
