What materials did you use? 1 ball 8 ply/DK pure wool - formerly cream, but I hand-dyed it with food colouring; 1 pair 4mm needles, needle to sew up; iced and boiling water for felting

What are you most proud of? I mixed my own colours and managed to make the booties match the embroidery on a dress I had made.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? When looking for a pattern for your projects, don't worry if you can't find a perfect one - think about what the essential features are - I wanted a simple cuffed bootie pattern with mostly stocking stitch in a newborn size that would suit my 8ply yarn. The fact it had cuffs I didn't like wasn't a big deal.
