Baby booties

In anticipation of the impending arrival of my nephew, I have knitted two pairs of baby booties from the pattern Ruth’s Perfect Baby Booties, and a hat of my own pattern. The first pair is made with Schoeller Esslinger Fortissima Cotton (fingering weight) on US 2 needles, and are newborn-sized. The second pair is made with Katia Mississippi Print (also fingering) on US 3 needles, and should fit a 3-6 month old.
