Stay-on toddler bootees that couldn’t

Stay-on Booties

Here they are. All done. But already sadly defeated. If anyone has any ideas for keeping Little Fox’s one-year-old toes warm and dry this winter, drop me a line. We’ve tried soft-soled shoes, different types of socks, and now these booties, with no success. He pulls off or squirms out of everything I put on his feet. Knitting him longies with footies may be my only recourse, but that will take me at least a week. I’ve posted in the Knitters with Small Children forum in Ravelry. Maybe they’ll have some good ideas.

    Shoes with laces have been working for us so far (my youngest just turned one). It worked for my oldest, too. Just be sure to double knot the laces because one year olds can untie and discard a shoe faster than you can put the second shoe on!

    By the way, those booties are adorable! I’m sorry they won’t work out for you. 😦

    duct tape…

    Just kidding (sort of).

    Some sort of fastener that’s too intricate for him to figure out just yet?

    Lovely knitting.
