Ok, so, having gotten Mom's approval for impractical baby clothing when accompanied by practical clothing, I made some baby booties. They're Saartje's booties, seen first at brooklyntweed and I like them well enough. They aren't finished to a high degree of quality but they're still pretty cute. I think something about the buttons bother me. They make the booties look a bit like little frogs...

Soooo sweet! I kinda see what you mean about the buttons looking like eyes. I bet that effect will totally disappear when the booties are on little feet.

Word of advice - don't do what your great grandma did and go nuts knitting booties, kid. (She sent me about two dozen pair when you were born.) They usually don't stay on and are notoriously impractical. Of the two dozen she gave me, only a very few were actually usable. Knit tiny little socks instead!
