Four bootees for four little feet that, thankfully, have not yet arrived. They need more time to grow and develop. (Much like I, as knitter, do!)

This really is a very quick and sweet pattern. I would never have thought I'd one day be knitting bootees. I'm still not sure I'm overly fond of the idea on the whole, but I had so much fun knitting them, that they may grow on me.

I think I might like them better in a soft cream yarn. The pink was purchased specifically for this project and no cream was available. The red, also Baby Cashmerino, was leftover from another project. I thought it best to do them not matching.

"Animal crackers and cocoa to drink,
That is the finest of suppers I think;
When I'm grown up and can have what I please
I think I shall always insist upon these."
Christopher Morley (1890-1957)
