We went for a countryside walk on Bank Holiday Monday, partly because I wanted to take a stroll through a bluebell wood. You really have to catch the right time to do this. But one of the other flowers that we saw a lot of were stitchwort. Stitchwort is such an unassuming but pretty little flower.
I decided to have a go at knitting an adult sized version of my Baby Tundra Shoes. This was great fun, although harder than I imagined. Adult feet are not the same shape at all as baby feet, much longer and thinner. I worked with both shoes on the needle at the same time, which was rather fun.
Although I have jotted down what I did, I am not going to publish this as a pattern at the moment. One reason is I have no idea what this wool is. It was given to me as part of someone's stash that they no longer wanted. It is really, really thick. I have no idea if anything similar is available. So I may be off to my local wool shop to study the chunky wools.
My family think the shoes are extremely funny, and although I know they are not at all elegant, I do think they would be lovely to wear on a cold winter night. I have them in mind as a gift for someone who I know hates to have cold feet.
