Baby Shoes



Between other knits I seem to always fit in a few pairs of booties. I haven't tired of knitting these yet, and they do seem to be the most consistent seller from my Etsy shop. I guess no one minds treating a new baby.


I wasn't sure about the yellow ones to start with, but once now I have embroidered on the daisy flowers I find they are my favourite. The wool is a really nice cotton, and and unusual mix of yellow and white. I'm not sure of the brand, but wonder if it comes in other colours as it was so nice to work with. I wonder if anyone will recognize it.


And these green ones (Is this green? It is a bit hard to put your finger on this colour) are knitted in Rowan Calmer, which came from my sister. I decided to return to my little embroidered bumble bee. As usual they come in a cream dupion silk shoebag.

  3. The yellow ones are just right for spring, and the bumble bee ones would be great for either a boy or a girl.

  5. Do these make the heart melt, or what? I can't decide which pair I like better. Had I a baby, and these booties, I might have him/her wear one of each.

  7. The yellow and white booties are just beautiful! And the flower adds the perfect touch for spring and summer.
    Judging by all your beautiful pictures on the left of your page, you are quite creative with the hook. I love the starfishes!

  13. The yellow with daisies are very pretty. I just bought Rico Baby Cotton today at Wonderwool - it is yellow and pale pink - there were other colour combinations there as well. (Patchwork Fairy) (I can't leave a comment except with google)
