Mutant bootie April 6, 2009

So yesterday I c/o for yet another set of Saartje Booties but this time combining a strand of bamboo yarn with some of my leftover cream yarn. The end result? A huge mutant bootie. How did I not notice this as I was knitting? It only really came to my attention after I snipped the threads and started weaving the bootie together. *sigh* I may end up turning it into a Christmas ornament 🙂 The colors are gorgeous together, but yes, it could probably fit my almost 3 year old’s foot. And if they didn’t look like Mary Jane shoes I’d probably knit the other one and let him have a go at them.
