These boots are made for walking

Our gorgeous girl learnt to walk last week, we are so proud of her. She is still a bit wobbly but getting more steady by the day. She is quite pleased herself, and loves all the praise.

Congratulations Honey you are so clever and special.

She is wearing my first knitted FO (finished object) of the year, I know terrible but I seem to be easily distracted hence the six or so WIPs (work in progress) on the go.

Anyway the pattern I used is Tikki’s well written Eden’s Adam.

It can be knitted up in 4ply, 8ply and 10ply cotton or wool yarns. With an amazing 14 different sizes NB up to child size 10.

Tessa’s version above I knitted size 18m with my first try of hand dying which I was quite pleased with. And Shepherd baby wool 4ply in a coordinating lime green. I knitted the ruffle by increasing kfb of each stitch and carried on in a lace pattern which I think was lost in the multicoloured yarn, also it have sit better if I had knitted the ruffle twice as long. Oh well we live and learn, next time I will know. It was my second time using circular needles and I am hooked it seems so much faster and smoother than straights.
