Baby Bootees!

So pair one of Saartje's bootees are done!  These are for a prof in my department who is expecting!  The yarn is Sockotta (cotton/wool/nylon blend).  It isn't my favorite yarn for socks...a little scratchy in my opinion, but it works perfect for some bootees!  The pattern tends to run a little small, so I used US 3 needles and am really happy with the size of these.  (maybe it's because I knit on the tight side)  

I have plans to make one more pair of these for another friend I met at a recent math conference.   Hope you all are having a great week, I know I'm having fun!!!

So cute! The scratchiness of Sockotta has always kept me from buying it. Does it soften up when washed?
