Adorable 100% fine merino handknit booties, light grey color with Liberty of London ribbon (Meadow purple, red or Capel Mustard).

Keeping baby feet warm and cosy is essential especially in the first days of a baby life. Ribbon will assure the booties are still one even if baby is on the move.

Knitted in the round from top, cable cuff first, then top of the foot and finally finishing with the sides and the sole.

I tried to avoid seaming as often as possible, to provide more comfort for babies.
