Easter Footwear

The room is now decorated and just waiting for the carpet to be laid. So I’ve had more time than I thought to spend on the knitting and managed to finish some little booties and shoes for the Craft Fair.

I used yellow as the main colour as we are coming up to Easter. Yellow is a very happy colour to knit with must be because it is the colour of sunshine. All footwear are knitted in DK with small oddments of yellows, whites and orange.

Still in keeping with the Womens Weekly KAL, I continued with the rabbit theme, making some Bunny Booties

These would fit a baby 6-9 months, the ribbed cuff would ensure the booties stay on, although the ears may get a good tugging from little hands.

The Duck Booties are the same size and use the same basic pattern.

I knitted two round balls, and sewed on an orange beak to create the duck heads, which fitted perfectly on to the bootie

This is a good pattern which can be adapted to create many different animals, may try frog booties next.

The Mary Jane shoes are an old favourite, I always try to make a pair to match any little coat or jacket I’ve knitted

These shoes would fit a baby 3-6 months, they do look really pretty in yellow and would complement that special little dress to be worn on Easter Sunday.

Taking a break from knitting for a few days, to rest the hands, but the mind is already on the next project!
