This fun set, sized for about a six month young one, is knit in…gulp, Madelinetosh Sport. It was left over from a recent project and I didn’t want any of this yarny goodness to go to waste. This sportweight wool is right up there with my all-time best sport or DK weight. I just wish we didn’t have to take out a mortgage to knit something with it.
My only modifications were to leave the “stops” off the bottom of the booties. Stops are what the Australian-based Checkheaton company calls them anyway. I’d call them cleats. They are very cute small-sized bobbles that you knit one by one and then attach to the soles of the booties. I was worried they’d be a choke hazard.
