A month or so ago, I knitted and embroidered these little booties. I really like the idea of embroidering on knitting, and so I have been experimenting. I did not take notes or immediately document on ravelry that these were in process, so I can’t remember which Mary Jane pattern I knitted. There are several nice ones on ravelry though – free too. I knitted one of those patterns I’m not real happy about my memory sometimes.
I used just the regular DMC embroidery floss. I used all six strands. (six right?)
I just kinda of played around with the lazy daisy stitch and meandered around the booties.
I sent them to my little niece Lila whose feet are rapidly growing. They were cute on her, but I am thinking they won’t fit long. I would guess that they no longer fit now, but I think they are kind of fun to look at and remember that her feet were once that size for just a little while.
maybe she has a Doll that can wear them :-). so excited to see your post, I actually just went to your fb page yesterday to see if I had missed a blog entry :-), the way fb has narrowed who sees what, I was afraid I had missed one!
I love these! So beautiful!
Adorable! Love the embroidery on the booties.
