A Pair, but not a FO

When does a pair not consititute a FO? Well, when you need four instead of only two!

This pair of Saartje's Bootees is the first pair.

Hopefully there will be a set of four soon. My second cousin is pregnant with twins. In fact, she's already in the hospital. Good thing that Saartje's bootees are very quick to knit.

I wandered outside my comfort zone on these. Generally I steer clear of anything requiring seaming. Seaming? Ugh. That's why I usually stick to socks and shawls.

I guess I could have knit two baby blankets. Yeah. Right!
"It is the inalienable right of every baby to look adorable. And it's the privilege of every mother, aunt, grandmother and friend-of-the-family to make sure of this. Whether it's for your own special bundle of bliss or somebody else's blessed event, making things for a baby with your own hands comes under the department of pure pleasure."
The New Encyclopedia of Sewing : 1949
