These booties are the perfect way to use teeny amounts of leftover sock yarn. The pattern offers two versions; unisex – Leo – and girl – Lea. The look is rather traditional but the knitting is totally seamless and in the round, there is no picking up of stitches. They will make a perfect baby shower gift and can even be knit at the last minute, an evening should be enough…
I’m working on a pair of matching mittens (in the two versions), stay tuned for these!
About 13g of sock yarn.

I’m working on a booties & mittens set for newborns, made out of my favourite yarn, sock yarn. I have finished the girl version and am now working on a unisex version. They will be perfect for baby shower gifts and can easily be made as a last minute gift as they are really quick to knit and use very little yarn. Here is a preview of the girl version, stay tuned for the unisex version 😀
I decided to sell 4 of my shawl patterns as a set, The Shawl Collection. It is composed of the Ederra Shawlette, the Sunkissed Shawl, Twirly Wrap and the Agate Capelet.
The set costs $10.00
I’m delighted to have my third pattern published on Knit Picks as part of their Independent Designer Program! 😀
Pattern can be found here and more details are available here.
Sunkissed is a bright and happy garter stitch shawl knit in two colours with lace sections that grow bigger as the shawl grows and a simple picot edging.The simple lace pattern makes it ideal for new knitters.
It can easily be made smaller or larger by doing more or less lace sections but remember that the given yardage is for the pattern as shown here.

I just finished knitting my shawl, which is now named Sunkissed, somehow it just seems like the appropriate name. It’s just off the needles, so is still unblocked and is modeled by my – very happy looking – 5-year old! 😉 So, obviously, it’s too big for him!
Here are a few pictures, it will now be tested and should be published in about 10 days.
I’m progressing on my shawl and I like it so far. I’m still unsure what the edge will look like, one certainty only is that it will be in yellow!
