Bootie sizes
Does anyone have a newborn size bootie on hand? Can you measure the dimensions for me? I need cuff length and foot length. Also, if you don't mind, your needle size, gauge and stitch count around the cuff.

I'm knitting baby socks (without a pattern) and going by eye, the size looks too big, but I'm not sure. If you can help, I'd be soooo grateful!

I don't think that she meant that kind of bootie! (Mine is rather large as well :rollseyes: )

Sorry, Silver, I don't have one by hand. What you could do, though, is pick up some newborn booties at the store and measure. Wish I could be of more help!

Eh, I went ahead and knitted them. I think they're close enough to newborn size. Maybe a tad big, but close enough.
