tiny shoes

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…

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. 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! :)

    • 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. :)

  2. 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 .
