I hope everyone had a good weekend. I spent most of the weekend knee deep in my sewing room tidying it. So of course to tidy you have to pull everything out to sort and repack into new baskets I bought to put into 2 news sets of shelves I got from Cheap as Chips. So there are pockets of tidy surrounded by piles of mess. Lol
Now I thought I would post this pattern because it is a very easy bootee pattern using 8 ply wool. You could probably get them knitted and sewn together in under an hour.

Every row and when you do the decreasing rows knit the decreases and make sure you knit or purl next stitch as required to keep pattern correct.
