These are the tiny maryjane slippers that set off towards Lota with the cardi a few days ago…
They belong to that class of baby/child clothes and accessories that makes me shout out “Why don’t they make these in adult sizes?!”
I love the little detail on the front – the peepholes that child maryjanes so often have. Adds that perfect touch to them!
The sole is made in garter stitch – providing the softness and squishiness that will cushion her little feet as they test out the hard floor for the first time…
The buttons are the same as on the cardi, only bigger! I have a crush on these buttons…
And I can already see her setting off for adventure with them…
Really gorgeous! And so cute!
Did you knit these shoes in a DK weight, then? And if so, did you have to modify the pattern? I’m asking because I’ve had my eye on it but was put off by the fact that the description says they should be done in fingering weight.
Huh, just had to check on Ravelry. The yarn is Manos Silk Blend, and yes, Rav says it’s DK. I didn’t do any modifications because I wasn’t knitting for a specific size. The baby was just born when I started knitting so I figured she’ll grow into them sooner or later. If they were still with me I’d measure them for you to let you know what size they came out, but unfortunately that didn’t occur to me before I sent them off.
Honestly, though, this is really a TINY project. Even in fingering weight, it should be finished in a jiffy! I highly recommend it! :)
PS They are so cute I could weep!
very cute, I love them !
They are so cute!
It’s all the pattern’s fault ;)
oooh, they are SO adorable!! I love the colour. Those little shoes are just about the cutest thing ever.
I once came across a blog post in which the person talked about making them just as a decoration for the packaging in which she was putting some handknit baby clothes. They’re that awesome – that they can actually serve as decoration. :)
Oooh they’re adorable!!! One of the cutest things I’ve ever seen! I love your pictures too :)
Thanks! I’ve been trying to improve my photography lately, I’m glad it’s working at least a little bit :)
Adorable! They’re going to look great w/ that cardi!
I know! Can’t wait to see them together, ON the baby! :)
Ridiculously cute. Somebody I know needs to get pregnant, stat!
Hehe, people I know have been quite obliging in that respect lately… Baby knits are awesome, I’m so happy I discovered them :)
Awww those are so cute I love looking at baby stuff. I should add them to my to make list everyone I know is popping out a baby .
Great thing about baby stuff – it’s so tiny that it’s done really fast. That plus the cuteness = instant gratification :)
Indeed, why don’t they make those in adult sizes?! Totally adorable. What a beautiful outfit!
