These booties are the perfect way to use teeny amounts of leftover sock yarn. The pattern offers two versions; unisex - Leo - and girl - Lea. The look is rather traditional but the knitting is totally seamless and in the round, there is no picking up of stitches. They will make a perfect baby shower gift and can even be knit at the last minute, an evening should be enough…
