Now that Christmas is over, I won’t be ruining any surprises by sharing these pictures!
My flat’s decorations were a little on the eccentric side… When you’ve got a Halloween skeleton and very little storage, you make it (her) join in with the Christmas spirit by throwing tinsel and lights at her! Some of my friends think I’m weird. I am. And I’m totally OK with that!
In November, the family increased by the value of one, and I am now a Great Aunt! Eek! My new Great Nephew was born about a month premature, but is quickly catching up. I got to meet him for the first time just after Christmas. So, what did I make for the new addition to the family? Crochet Booties, of course!
I made a tiny version of some All-Star Converse in navy, and some green lizard booties in a slightly larger size:
I purchased one pattern from etsy, to make the lizard booties. Credit goes to Bonita Patterns for the design, which I think is super cute (and I may scale these up into adult sizes in future!).
And the Converse style was a combination of free patterns, for which I started here: Belle Tracy. These were super fiddly, but they were definitely the favourites when the prezzies were opened at Christmas!
