These cute pink and brown booties are a variation on the popular cross-strap Saatrje's Booties pattern. I made them as a Christmas present for my cousin's 7-month old daughter Cecelia.

I knit these with regular worsted weight dark brown yarn for the sole, and sport weight pink on top. This provided a nice contrast in texture, as well as a more substantial sole for an increasingly mobile baby. I finished them with little brown shank buttons and embroidered "Ce" on each bootie so together they spell Cecelia's nickname.

I really love personalizing knitted items - you know that item was made especially for the wearer, and it makes the item that much more special.
