Stay-on Booties and More

 So I knit some stay-on booties, two pairs of these and it took me nearly 2 weeks. Actually it took more time to photograph them then to knit them. The final verdict...these are very cute and do stay-on a while longer then the regular socks, that is, about five minutes. Which is not long enough to keep the little feet warm, so the baby is currently using the booties with drawstrings. Maybe drawstrings would work for these too. I am going to try and add drawstring to these booties, inshaAllah.
 Actually I did a bit more than just the booties, the past two weeks. In addition to celebrating Eid and writing a pattern, I worked on a quilt. This is my first attempt at quilting and I am learning a lot. The squares are not not perfectly aligned and all, but I will go ahead and add borders anyway. Soon, I hope.


  1. So cute! I knit real socks for babies and toddlers, but in a heavier yarn. They are thick and warm, but the turned heels and tall legs help them stay on.

  2. The booties are cute BUT...I ADORE the quilt!

  3. as salaamu `alaykum!

    Oh I am so in love with the booties!! They are SO adorable and you ma shaa Allah are SO talented!

    You know, I've been wanting to quilt for the longest time. I want to hand-piece it because I don't see myself at a sewing machine (have yet to get over my fear of them things :P). What I am wondering about is what I'm going to do when it comes to binding and quilting it. *sigh* I LOVE your quilt. Doesn't matter that the squares don't align - it's still charming!

  4. as salaamu `alaykum again...

    So sorry! My husband didn't log out of his google account when he used my laptop... that was me who left the last post, not kkiyani :)

  5. Much better socks .Love your little quilt.It's really fascinating to work wirh fabrics and stripes and squares.
