Knocking walls down and having the kitchen rearranged in the final weeks of pregnancy left no choice but to hide away upstairs with some wool for company. Fifi on DVD kept small girl happy while I clicked away using my best bamboo needles.
Using this pattern found on ravelry, and some left over wool I made these super fast booties easily in an afternoon. I used Sirdar snuggly baby dk wool which was lovely to work with, feels very soft and is great value; I made two pairs of booties, two hats and still had wool to spare despite having started with a left over ball. Best of all the pattern was quick to finish and looks deliciously cute. Those purple flower buttons I had been saving for something special finished the booties perfectly.
I have enjoyed looking at them sitting on the kitchen dresser but even more I have loved looking at them being worn by the small person I was thinking about when I was making them. Even if she does keep kicking them off!
Lying all cosy in her pram is the best place to be at the moment, looking at all the rain and wind through the conservatory window has kept her happy for most of the morning.
She is growing so fast that I need to make some larger shoes for her, I found this pattern which I think I will start while small baby is still happy looking at this miserable weather.
These booties would make a perfect little baby gift. They make you feel happy just looking at their small cuteness.
What is making you feel cheerful today?
