I’ve been on a search for the perfect knit baby booties and stumbled upon this pattern by Christine Bourquin via the dragon[knit]fly blog (See her cute FO above). The side ribbing of the booties helps them stay on the baby’s feet. This pattern was originally published in Threads magazine in 1989 by a 95 year old Christine Bourquin. If she were alive today she’d be 113 years old. I love the idea that this pattern lives on after her and that a new baby can enjoy warm feet based on Christine’s design. [ via ] Link.
