When my youngest cousin was born, I spent so much time working on everything from teeny tiny sweaters to the most adorable baby hats I could find. I had even tackled the project of creating an elaborate baby blanket. Somehow, I had managed to forget all about the booties. If there’s one thing babies can never have enough of, it’s definitely booties. There’s no telling how many pairs you’ll have to buy before your child is old enough to wear shoes that won’t fall off every five seconds. If you’ve had children of your own or know someone with little ones, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
Babies start kicking and the booties start flying! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard complaints about babies losing one (or both) of their booties without their parents even noticing until it’s too late. Sometimes, they’re lost never to be found again. Other times, one bootie is hiding out between the cushions on the sofa only to be found when the baby has, quite conveniently, grown out of them. Why not just save yourself the trouble and knit the booties yourself?
Knitting your baby’s booties yourself comes with its own set of perks. You will not only get the satisfaction of watching your child grow in something you made, but baby booties also make the perfect keepsake. Once your baby outgrows his or her booties, hold on to them. Place them in a box filled with precious mementos throughout the years or display them more openly. Years from now, I can guarantee you’ll be glad you did! After all, I still have my very first pair of shoes hanging from the rear view mirror in my car. So, why not get started today on the knit to last a lifetime?
