A friend that used to work with me at the same PR company, but she was based in the US, recently had her second child, a boy. She had a gorgeous girl a few years ago and I made a bonnet and bootie combo then, I mentioned it in the collection here.
Because her little man is a Summer baby I decided on these absolutely adorable baby sandals. I LOVE them.
I used this brilliant pattern, and it’s really well thought out. The knitting doesn’t take very long at all, it’s the sewing up, which regular readers of this blog know I am not a big fan of.
I used some of the DROPS Muskat that I had left and was lucky to have some lovely blues and greens left, with a lovely dark brown sole.
The pattern is really well written and well worth the £2.45 I paid for it.
Of course I made my usual box to hold the sandals.
And my friends little man arrived last week and today she sent me some pictures of him wearing them…and my heart melted! JUST TOO CUTE FOR WORDS!!!
