Once more with Bootees

I was going to call this post, "Let's knit another one, just like the other one", kind of nodding to Steppenwolf, but then, as I was doing part of the reverse stocking stitch bit on this cardigan for my eldest male Canadian cousin's first grandchild (the first of a new generation in our family, i.e. the first gggrandchild of our joint grandparents), I found myself reminded of the bootees I made many times in the past.  The first pair of these bootees I knitted for my youngest female Canadian cousin.  She was born when I was seven, so this was about 50 years ago.  Until now the last pair I did was for my own DD, born nearly 25 years ago and I made many pairs in between.  I have lost the pattern now, but remember it pretty well, so I thought it would be fitting that the first member of a new generation in our family should have a pair of these bootees, especially as they would go rather nicely with the cardigan. So instead it nods to Buffy the Vampire Slayer by being titled "Once more with Bootees" (with reference to the episode "Once more with Feeling" for those who are not familiar)
