Baby Boots Giveaway

In anticipation of the arrival two new baby friends, I have been making Baby Boots.

IMG_1250I made a version of these for my babes. They are sturdy and stay on kicking legs. You can tie them at the back, if your baby is of the untying inclination.

IMG_1249The pattern is Cashmere Bootees by Zoe Mellor and it appears in her Nursery Knits and Big Book of Kids’ Knits. The size is for six to nine months. These have been knitted in the first hand spun yarn I was truly proud of making.  The yarn is soft merino, variegated in a beautiful storm of sunsets and early evening blues.

IMG_1186They were knitted during a heatwave, so I am sure there is lots of extra warmth knitted in.  I knitted by a river whilst camping with friends, so I knitted in the children laughing and all their splashy fun as well.  These boots have good times knitted all through.

IMG_1241I got so excited in knitting for these two babies, not twins but neighbours, that I knitted up another pair with the very last of the yarn.  This last pair, celebrating all new babies, is my first giveaway for 2014.

IMG_1238So if you have or know a baby who has cold feet right now (Northern climes) or will have in the coming Winter (Southern climes), leave a comment and let me know.  I will post to cold-footed babies everywhere.

Update: This giveaway is now closed.

  1. The colours are truly wonderful as is the spinning! Some baby is going to be very lucky…..as is the moma 🙂

  2. Oh how sweet. I know the perfect little baby these can be for. My little one, while 6-9 months, has been wearing 12-24 socks for some time! 🙂 Thank you.

  3. Anything with good times sewn right in has to be good! They look ace as does that river! My excepting friend pops in May and will be doing it solo so she would no doubt lurve to kit out her kiddie in baby boots booty… in fact I do believe you recently met her : )

  4. I don’t know any little feet so I wont enter the giveaway but I wanted to say how beautiful those little booties are. I love that there’s summery warmth and childrens laughter knitted into them.

  5. My sister in law in due in August. After listening carefully to the noises coming from within I’m sure I heard he/she say they would love the booties to keep their little feet toasty.

  6. I have one due in May, and the A/C is always cold on little feet! 🙂

  7. I think our 10-month-old would have feet too big for them by now, but we have a wee godson who would be just the right size. What a sweet and generous giveaway. 🙂
