 Warm Little Tootsies


I had to knit T some warm, wooly slippers in a mad hurry last week Thursday night. We were packing for a weekend camping (cabin) trip, and I suddenly realized his snowsuit is the kind that doesn't have feet. It's pretty cold in Michigan these days, so if we wanted to do any hiking, some warm footwear was a must. So I stayed up until 1 a.m. making these. They fit just right, with plenty of room to grow. I love them!

Pattern: Garter Stitch Booties by Debbie Bliss
Needles: US size 2 straight needles
Yarn: Dawn (American Thread Co.) knitting worsted wool in blue wine heather (love this color!)

Those look great. And it's inspiring that you could just whip them up as part of the trip preparations!
