German Bootees (and gratuitous baby pics)

Edward is pushing 6 months at this point, which seems CRAZY. (d.o.b. 4/18/2011.) But, he's the size of an average 11-month-old. That's a 12-month sleep suit he's wearing in this picture (gratuitous cute baby pic #1):



(cute? yes. very cute.) If you notice, he is wearing some knit bootees. I did not knit these--my German au pair's grandmother did. She brought them with her from Germany when she came to live with us. How cool is that? Here's a close-up:



Here's Anna, our au pair. We LOVE HER. If any of you want to talk about welcoming an au pair into your home, I'm your girl (gratuitous cute baby pic #2):



Oh right. This is a knitting blog, not a baby blog. So here's another photo of the bootees. They're made of a wool/nylon blend sock yarn. The draw-string is really great, as is the roll-top cuff. They actually look really dressy on him. Perfect for this fall weather.



There it is. Gratuitous baby pics slipped in under the guise of knitting.
