I finished knitting these wee booties a while ago, but they sat around for a while waiting to be seamed and dyed. I finally got around to that last weekend, and now have 3 pairs of Treliske organic merino booties ready for the Squiggler. The cords are just crochet chains.
I used a basic pattern in this Shepherd bootie booklet, definately a favourite of mine!
I wanted some strong colours, so used quite a lot of dye and dyed them in jars in the microwave. This achieved a slightly mottled result which I like. The blue is Wiltons azure blue, the teal is Americolor teal, and the green is a mixture of apple green food colouring from Spotlight and Americolor forest green.
