Finishing Off

3 Comments

It has been such a busy week preparing for Easter and the family coming home that I decided to just concentrate on finishing a few projects which have been in various stages of completion.

I actually started these little outfits before Christmas, with most of the pieces already knitted up, but they were put aside when other more urgent orders came in. The little matinee coats are from an old vintage pattern which I used for my own children when babies.

Both Matinee coats are from the same pattern, I just reversed the colours which are a lovely creamy yellow and white and the lacy pattern gives a very pretty effect

I used little duck buttons on both coats and made a pair of Mary Jane shoes for one and a pair of little booties for the other

Using the same yarn I knitted a jumper and some seriously cute tennis shoes, which would fit a baby 6-12 months

The white stripes are achieved by two rows of garter stitch which give a ridged effect, and for easy dressing it has a three button fastening at the back.

Nothing worse than trying to squeeze a neck opening over a baby’s head! The tiny tennis shoes were a pattern on ravelry which I just fell in love with. They are very quick and easy to knit and seemed to go so well with the jumper.

Also finished  a pair of Crossover Shoes for a little girl in pink and lilac, so all in all quite a productive week

Hope everybody has a joyful Easter, will have a little break from the knitting and start on some new projects next week
