Every girl wants a pair of red shoes. These little booties for Carmen are made using the Saartje’s Bootees pattern on Ravelry. She was born a couple months ago, but I will be seeing her soon. Hope these fit.
The yarn is something mysterious from the back of my stash which I got two years ago at Idee in Berlin. I was on a month-long trip that began and ended in that city, so on the first leg I bumped into the store, saw how amazing it was, and put it on the list of shopping destinations for my return. I got one little knitting project to take on the trip with me, but didn’t want to carry too much in my backpack. This is some yarn I picked up for a special project to make at home, but I ended up only needing a few yards.
Since the quantity of the yarn was unknown as well, I opted for a single-strap version with stitch numbers adjusted like these. Fortunate, because there was only about a yard left when they were done.
The shoes are so cute I could not stop taking pictures. As an added bonus, may I would like to present you to Robby Raccoon himself!
the one and only RobbyRaccoon!
don’t they fit him perfectly?
