That’s right, it’s more boys for our family! The last time I wrote about babies in our family, we were waiting to find out what the next two (due in March and in April) would be. Turns out they are both boys! That will make 8 boys in 8 years (and no girls)!
I made this sweet pair of booties as a little Christmas gift for one of them. These are the Oscar booties , my favorite pattern for booties.
I used some Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sport Solid from my stash, on size 0s, and a sweet little white ribbon for the ties. I think they are quite charming. This is a very fast and easy pattern to whip up, and I would highly recommend it. It goes especially nicely with any sort of garter jacket or sweater (in the past, I’ve made them to go with the Baby Surprise Jacket). Lorna’s Laces Sport is also my go-to yarn for this knit (and for baby knits in general). I always order it from Angelika’s Yarn Store – she ships so fast! I pretty much always get my orders in exactly 2 days.
This was my last FO for 2011. I still have a little bit of sewing to show you, and then I will finally move forward to 2012!
