Junior Jubilee

Red, white, blue, flags, balloons, bunting, painted faces, street parties - schools, nurseries, church halls, pubs, everywhere! Seems that even the least likely patriots of us have caught the Jubilee bug, particularly here in London where the 2012 Olympics are looming on the horizon. It's not even worth taking down the decorations - might as well just keep them up until September.
Wishing you all a lovely and not too soggy (weather forecast is dire of course) weekend of celebrations.

Little Chukka....Baby Desert Boots

Knitted Baby Desert Boots, Baby Boots, Booties, Cool Baby boots

Desert boots - they're everywhere at the moment, and don't we just love 'em! A great design classic and never out of style for those who know how to wear them (big salute to those old Mod friends of mine - you know who you are). Now the tiniest member of your family can be just as cool as mum, dad or older siblings and have their own pair. Stretchy and cosy, they tie on and look great on either a boy or a girl. Pictured above in cool cotton demin yarn (also trending big-time for summer this year) with contrasting laces for extra authenticity, or why not try a contrast sole.

Can also be knitted, and felted, in wool for when it's a little colder. Shown here in a versatile neutral Shetland yarn.

Each boot knits up in one piece, apart from the laces, with a single seam to stitch up. A small amount of shaping to follow but easy and super-quick to knit with a very simple way of fastening.

Makes a great little gift to celebrate a the birth of a new baby, and will be appreciated and used.... I looked all over for a pattern like this when my daughter was 3 months old and couldn't find one - so I made my own. They use only a small amount of yarn and are a good way of using up those little leftover oddments.

If you're feeling adventurous, why not check out my new stripey version.
