FO: Newborn booties

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.
