Wind-up: (from ltop to bottom, left to right) 1) A mixed-pattern 'Ring-around-the-rosie set', made w. leftover white and red 4-Ply Soft from Lucy's cardigan. The hat is topped it with a flower from the "Lottie" cardigan;
2) Two Kidsilk Haze knot shoes in subdued colors, one a sage gray and the other a blend of Marmalade and Caramel Swirl;
3) I'd wanted to make these babies ever since I first picked up the book. Rowan Denim was also the first yarn I ever stashed. I used off-white rubber buttons (JHB International) , and the strap is secured with a small hook-and-eye instead of buttons;
4) Yet another bootie is born of the 4-Ply Soft left over from "Lottie". Knitting this 'Textured Cuff Bootie' is almost like opening a pop-up book. As the shaping kicks in, the odd assortment of stitches on the needle fold themselves into a small shoe;
5) Everyone likes a red Mary Jane. This one is in a discontinued shade of 4-Ply Cotton, with a small glass pearl button (JHB International);
6) I made a pair of socks(?) from the "Duck Feet" pattern in saturated blue, turning the prosaic duck into that rara avis, the Blue-Footed Booby. For those who aren't into birds, they look like cotton scuba flippers;
7) Thick handknit goodness. Leftover yarn from Tom's ribbed sweater turns into a reverse-colorway pair of socks for his new sister;
8) The tweed keeps this pattern from being precious, and the garment is easily as soft as one of the fine merino wools; 9) The Textured-Cuff bootee really does look good in any yarn.
