I originally was looking for a pattern to sew a pair, however lots of Crochet and Knitting patterns came up when I searched, and my crocheting is marginly better than my knitting.
I used this pattern from Ravelry as it looked about my level (easy!) And having had a rummage in my stash of yarn, I choose some 55% wool double knit, as it feels beautifully soft when made up.
My first attempt resulted in a green pair of booties which are slightly lop sided. However I have turned the first bootie inside out and they look kinda like a left and right pair.
I have started a 2nd pair (in pink and cream) and this time paid more attention to the instructions and they appear to be coming out a little better shaped. I have decided instead of completing the bootie, I will turn these into a pair of mary-janes for a girl! As I don't know the sex of the baby yet, I will have both pairs on stand-by for when the baby is born!
I will post picture of the of mary-janes when I have finished them!
I love to read comments from all around the world, however it was nice to hear from some fellow UK bloggers on my last post, you may be interested in the a Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/202641099790216/ we are a group of UK crafters from moneysavingexpert.co.uk sharing our makes and chatting about all sorts.
