Rainbow Booties

I’ve said to myself that I’m going to try and post more regularly. This might even involve writing about knitting in general, or sewing for that matter. I’ve been thinking about a couple of different things that I want to write about, particularly the difference between continental and British knitting. So look out for my post on that. In the meantime, here are some booties that I finished quite a while ago.

I made them so long ago I can’t even really remember anymore who they were for, but I am quite pleased with the colour combination and it works so well. For a little boy or girl.

It’s also great how the ribbed part shows the green in the knit stitch really nicely.

And remember I’ve written up the pattern, which you can find here. If you try them out I would love to see some pictures.

Socks for Baby

I’ve knitted my fair share of adult socks before, but this is the first time that I tried my hand at some baby socks. I think they’ve turned out lovely.

I’m not going to find out whether my niece or nephew will be a boy or girl until its born, but I think the blue and green combination can work for either. I’m also going to look at making some more socks, as it makes it easy to use up all the leftover wool that doesn’t get used up normally.

It was the second time I had tried a Drops pattern and I have to admit, I’m very pleased with the result.
