Just recently I knit some more Hodge baby booties for our little girl. This pair reminds me of a box of crayons. The colours are so bright and bold. I have said it already, but will say it again, this is my absolute favorite pattern for baby booties The original pattern doesn't have a draw string band around the ankle for tying and so I added a round of yo, sl1, k1, psso where the ankle would be. As always, I am super pleased with the way they turned out !
Yesterday I cast on for another pair of whiteHodge booties, but with lace around the ankles.
It looks super cute and delicate, adding cute girly touch ! I finished the first one and then knit the second one. I was a little nervous, because I didn't have SO much yarn to finish the second one with. So, while knitting the sole of the second bootie, I see that my yarn is getting very very scarce. I am not left with maybe 1/3 of the teeny tiny sole needing to knit on my baby bootie. I have EIGHT INCHES OF YARN.
I know what you are thinking, go out and buy another skein. You can always use another ball of white yarn !!! And while, I completely agree with you, I have another problem; I bought this yarn in the America and threw the ballband away. Big mistake, I know.
