Mid Night Booties

Well, I finally managed to knit something - yay!

These are the BSJ Inspired Booties but we call them Tiddler's Mid Night Booties as I knitted them through the middle of the night during a bout of insomnia. They're not as dainty looking as a lot of the ones on Ravelry as I used bigger needles and an aran yarn, but I wanted a chunky pair so I'm pleased at how they turned out. I'm not sure how much use we'll get out of them though - Tiddler manages to get them off within seconds of me putting them on. I tried to get a photo of him 'modelling' them but he kicked them off too quickly. Still, they satisfied my desperate need to get my hands on my knitting needles again!

I was hoping to have a go at knitting something for myself but I want to make a cardy for Tiddler before he gets too big, Miss Muffett has requested a poncho, and Mr Earplugs wants me to sew 'something' for his Grannies birthday, so I guess I'll have to wait a while.

I can't tell you how great it feels to get a bit of 'crafty' time into my life again.



  1. I love them, great you're getting out the needles again. I've just set up a make,do and mend group to help people get started, pop over & take a look :)

  2. Oh they are beautiful!!! I think even if they fall off they would look gorgeous on display in his room. Baby shoes are so cute, I have a pair of my youngest's Inch Blue leather ones with hearts and wings, can't bear to part with them!

  4. They are so sweet, and being aran will be warm as well. Love those square shaped toes!

  5. Yipee! they are beautiful. So glad you are getting some you time in....and it sounds like you will be busy!
