Star Booties

I started this post all ready to do a review of Knit One, Knit All, but ran out of steam. Next time, I promise. I'm just a bit too whacked on a Friday evening.

I will tease you a bit though, with an FO from the book:

Pattern: Star Booties by Elizabeth Zimmermann

Yarn: Jamieson & Smith 2 ply Jumperweight, scraps of three colours

Needles: 3.5mm Addi circulars

A super quick knit, they only took a couple of hours each.

Doesn't look like much, huh? Ah, but with a little EZ magic, all becomes clear:

Aren't they fab? I was concerned that the foot looked a little long, but I'm sure once they're on chubby baby feet they will look great.

I love them, I think they're like Tetris blocks!

So, apologies for the lack of review, but I'm sure you'll forgivce me and that the booties will whet your appetite!

Good knitting!

Wow. Nothing should surprize me with the beloved EZ. But still. Wow!

Ya boo. Wasn't finished commenting. Sorry.

Was going to say that I hopped over to KnittingElizabeth and was delighted to see that you cross-posted. Yay!

They do look funny! I'm just wondering if it's easier to knit a star than "traditional" bootees...

Hah! You're right, they DO remind me of Tetris! Ah, misspent days of my youth...
