Little Slippers for a Little Girlie


Along with all my sewing that I plan to do for my Little Girlie, I also have knitting plans. Perhaps my desires are a bit ambitious, but I hope to get the majority of what I want done...done:-)

Tilly rightly guessed that I was hinting at a little knitting project I was working on in my last post and so I thought I'd share what I am trying to make and my progress so far. Wow..lengthy sentence!



In the picture above you can see not only my project in progress, but also the book I got the pattern from and the finished project on the cover of said book. I am making these darling little slippers in a lovely coral colored bamboo/nylon yarn. The pattern calls for silk, but I decided I needed something more washable;-) You can either trim the opening with rosettes or use a ribbon tie to keep them on baby(or some other pretty little thing).

I went and did the majority of what you see there today, while enjoying tea with a friend at Peet's. What fun and thankfully I was with someone who is more experienced than I am in knitting..because I needed a little guidance in a technique I hadn't yet done. Thanks Nikki!

So far I am liking this pattern and if it continues to be an easy project, I will make more for when Wee Girlie is bigger:-)

If you are unable to see the whole title of the book(which I think is partially covered) I will tell you... Simple Knits For Cherished Babies by Erika Knight. There are quite a few little things in this book I'd like to knit up and all the patterns seem relatively easy.

When I finish, I will post pictures and give you a better review of the pattern:-)

Have a blessed Lord's Day my friends!!

Blessings,
Sommer

Oooh! I love the yarn you're using. The sheen on it is lovely! I'll have to check out that book. Simple is definitely what I need in knitting patterns!

They'll be beautiful, Sommer. :)

How darling! :) I can't wait to see the finished projects! I just saw your pregnancy tracker on the side, and I can't believe it's only 11 weeks to go! How thrilling to know that in three months you will be holding your little Lovey!
Happy Knitting!

Those are some of the prettiest little slippers for a baby girl that I've ever seen. Yours are going to be so pretty in that color yarn! They sound so luxerious and I can't wait to see them finished!
