Hi, I have just finished a pair of little booties to match my dancing poppies baby bolero.


Having no babies at home any more, it looks like it would fit a 3 months old.. so tiny, so cute ! I used Cascade wool 220 for this set, I love this yarn, quite cheap and stands time well.

I made a second pair using icelandic Lett Lopi yarn... I just love the feel and look of that yarn.. I used a contrasting color for the sole of this one and can hardly stand how cute it looks !!


Now I'll try and come up with a matching little cardigan for those blue booties... Oh, and an adult version of the booties too. That's the beauty of crochet : there's so much to crochet !! Too many ideas, not enough time ;-)

Thanks so much !! yep, still thinking I should try and make a more boyish little cardigan to match those blue booties.

And. Also wanted to share my friends' booties and bolero : she used 2 strands of Drops Alpaca held together for those, for a new baby girl born right  when she had just finished the booties. :-)



I'm in love with the way she styles her photos !!! Tongue  Grin
