not kansas

There's no place like home. And no place like a home with a new baby in it.

The Vital Statistics
Pattern: Ruby Slippers from Vintage Knits for Modern Babies by Hadley Fierlinger.
Size: 3-6 months.
Yarn: Filatura Lanarota Luxury Cashmere, 0.25 skeins.
Needles: 4.5mm.
Start to finish: 29 April to 1 May 2010.
Recycle/stash content: 100 per cent - hooray! The yarn I bought at a thrift store and the buttons, such cute buttons, came off a cashmere cardigan of mine that I had worn to death (and originally purchased at a thrift store).
Comments: Red is my favourite colour and I wanted to knit these booties the moment I saw the book. Having never knit booties before my knitting plans were disrupted for a few months by a mental block about knitting booties. I finally looked at the pattern and realised how simple they were; all the knitting was complete in one evening.

Verdict: Very cute and I cannot wait to meet the baby whom I made them for.

Very cute! There is something quite lush about such elegant, soft red shoes!
