First bootie, now what do I do???
Hello,

I just finished my first bootie for my first baby (still inside :D ). BUT, I am stuck on the "weaving" part. Instructions were as follows: Break yard draw through remaining st.--did that. Fold bootie in half; weave front and back seams---help with this part please!

Thank you.

Sounds like it just wants you to sew up the seams. You don't have to use a particular technique for this but usually people use whipstitch or matress. Just substitue "sew" for "weave" and pick something you think is suitable.

Kemp...thank you
Thanks for your quick response. So, do I actually "sew" the sides together or do I knit them together?

Cheers,
Karma

Just sew with a large yarn needle...or you could use a crochet hook to pull the yarn through like a needle. You probably want to do it inside out, so that when you turn it right side the seam doesn't show.

I the stitches are "live", then you can kitchener stitch them together for a seamless sole.....in other words, if it did NOT ask you to bind off the sts it is asking you to seam, then I would go kitchener. (There is a video on this site for that....)
