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