An excerpt: "For the cool days of early fall that come unexpectedly at times it is wise to be prepared with warm little articles for the baby's comfort. The chill of a damp, rainy day is often felt more keenly in the delicate flesh of baby than the real cold of winter. It is still too mild for wool, and silk comes in just right as a protection against chill. The little bootees described here are the very thing for this purpose."

Just an FYI that I'll have go on vacation mode due to upcoming surgery on my eyes. :p No fun but no choice anymore.
Surgery date is February 9th, 2016 and I most likely will start the vacation mode a few days earlier. My Ophthalmologist tells me 4 weeks but if I can I'll open up sooner (I'm kinda like that, wanting to be able to pay the doctor bills means pushing myself as much as I can).
