Ugg--they're done!

I made the UGG-type suede booties from a pattern for a set of newborn twins. I've seen many comments that although the pattern says it is for 3-6 or 6-12 month babies, the booties turn out to be toddler-size. So, I went from needle size 4 & 5 to 1 & 2 and reduced the cast on to 12 from 26. I made other changes to maintain the proportion. Anyway, the something new for me is re-working a pattern. Oh, I've added a stitch here or subtracted one there, but have not changed a pattern so drastically, especially one with shaping.

You can find the changes I made posted on my blog. See ya again in February!!
Cheers, Annie.

These are so incredibly precious!
I've bookmarked them and hope to someday make a pair or two - thanks for the inspiration. You've done a wonderful job!

Very cute! Definitely no "uggh" about it. :-)
