3-4.12.09 Page 81 Booties for Rom- designed by Susan B. Anderson

These cute booties are a present for a baby boy's friend called Rom. The instructions of the booties are free and kindly shared here in Susan B. Anderson's Blog.
I used a doubled thread of Teddy’s wool yarn and casted on 17 sts for the 0-3 month size (Instead of 21). I think each square was about 30 rows of Knit. Since the result was quite stiff and thick - I made only 2 squares for each booty.
The flowers are crocheted based on the “Meconopsis” Flower, designed by Lesley Stanfield and appear in “100 Flowers to Knit & Crochet” p.72, project 50. They are made with a 2mm hook size and cotton thread (50gr/125m).
They took me about 4-5 hrs.
