I knit these booties for one of my knitting friends, Kari. Although I had planned on knitting these for her, I hadn’t even started them when my knitting group decided to have a baby shower for her the very next week. I wasn’t able to start knitting them until 2 days before the shower! I knit like crazy and actually had the booties knit and seamed up in time, but, alas, I didn’t have any buttons! Luckily Kari is a Knitter, so she understands receiving a gift that’s not quite finished and giving it back for finishing :D

I found these cute elephant buttons at Joann Fabrics and was able to give them back to Kari this past Tuesday :)
