This is approximately what the bootee would look like if I sewed it up, already. The pattern also calls for a pom-pom to go on the tip of the toe, a cute touch that would conveniently hide the weird looking spot where the colors all come together.
The yarn is merino, I think, but I've lost the ball bands. I also have no idea what needle size I used to knit the first bootee, so it will be interesting to see if a second bootee will come out the same size. I still love the color combo--I must have started these for a very sophisticated baby, indeed.
