We recently spent a long weekend up at the cottage, for the first time since Lila was born. I think it’s safe to say she had a good time, as did we:
As it’s normally an 8 hour drive, we flew this time, which, while obviously more expensive, was only an hour each way and was good practice for our trip to England at the end of this month (did I mention we’re going to England? Because we’re going England. And hey, while we’re there, might as well pop over to Paris for a couple days….). The only thing I’ve noticed while reviewing these photos is that we were obviously too busy juggling the baby while on the plane to take any in-flight photos- next time, for sure.
Yarn: Knit Picks Merino Style and Michell & CIA Luxury Collection Alpaca Peru
Needles: Can’t even remember. Why didn’t I fill that in on Ravelry?
I actually knitted these booties when I was still pregnant, but they were turning out huge an I figured I’d have lots of time to finish them… then promptly forgot where I put them. I recently found them again, I realized that they would fit Lila now. Just needed to be seamed, and crochet chain some shoelaces. The problem? Shoelaces and an 8 month old. I basically just put knitted baby toys on her feet. She loves them, but it’s really hard to keep them on her feet. And those busy baby feet meant that it was really hard to take a photo that didn’t result in blurry booties. The pattern- it was easy to follow, and the booties are super cute. I wish I had made these in a brighter colour, though. The beige is tough to match with her wardrobe, which features lots of bright colours (like the Sunnyside baby sweater
she’s wearing). I love these, though. If I could keep her from pulling them off, they would be perfection.
This photo cracks me up.
