Bootees • 29 September 2008 • The SnowBlog


          Phew, that was close. This week includes both my due date and my own birthday, and finally - finally - I have started to find pictures of babies cute. I've always been ok with the cuteness of other mammalian infants. Kittens - check. Baby leopards - check. But human babies - er, not doing anything for me. Not enough fur, for a start. Thankfully I found a knitting pattern which featured these bootees popped on a chubby pair of baby legs that I actually found cute and quite nibblesome, so I made them, quick.

The poor child will see these photos in years to come and pray that I didn't team these rather wonky handknits with, say, brown velour dungarees. For that is what they're crying out for. 

(No need to point out the many flaws, by the way - I am astonished enough that I made them at all. The occasional fundamental mistake is neither here nor there.) 


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
