Quick and cute booties

Another baby present here, this one quick and easy: a pair of booties. I plan on modifying this pattern to work with Woolganic DK soon because I am knitting a baby sweater with that right now and would like a pair of booties to go along with it.

Pattern: Two-Tone Booties by Closeknit/Sarah Owens. It is a free Ravelry download available here.
Size: 3-6 mo (I made the 6 mo size, but they look small to me)
Yarn: Fleece Artist Nova Sock, colorway: stone
Gauge: 8sts/inch, unblocked
Needles: US 2/2.75 mm
Details: Made some mods to the pattern
1. I knit them on 2 needles.
2. I did not break the yarn for the instep or the sides; I rearranged the stitches as needed and changed my BOR. This was a little tricky when interpreting the decrease rnds, but it all worked out and my booties were seamless.
3. For my sole, I just worked 2 rnds of K after the decrease rnds and did kitchener stitch to close. I included a picture of my soles above.

Not sure how my mods will work with 2 colors in DK weight, but I will share my results.
