Tiny booties for a NICU baby!
My favorite bootie patern (found here http://www.saartjeknits.nl/) is super easy and cute.....however the pair I made in anticipation of my baby where waaaay to big on account of my litle one coming 6 weeks early. She weighed 4 pounds 14 oz and was super tiny.
Little Violet had to be in the "Special Care Nursery" for 11 days, but I was discharged after two so I spent the long hours in the hospital knitting these little booties by Violet's incubator.
The nurses loved them and thought I should sell them to Preemie parents, but if anything I would donate them not sell them, as being a parent in this situation is so stressful!
