My colleague made Saartje's Booties for a friend, and they were so darling that I had to make a pair for my boyfriend's cousin's second child.
Materials I used: Small amounts of Knit Picks Shine Sport Yarn, Terracotta (cc) and River (mc). Size 2 (2.75) needles. 4 buttons (the extra shirt buttons that you get from hotel sewing kits worked perfectly!
Making the larger size in the pattern, my booties are about 3.5 inches long. These knit up so unbelievably fast that you could whip up a pair if in the morning with a baby shower that same afternoon. I like the blue/orange combination because it ends up being pretty gender neutral.
