baby shoes

For a long time it's been a tradition of mine when my friends are expecting to knit a pair of booties as a first gift.  I've been wanting to do a cute pair of Mary Jane-inspired baby shoes for a while now but there have been a steady stream of little boys arriving among my friends.  So when Hannah and Aaron announced that they were expecting a girl, I wasted no time breaking out the pink and the pattern for these booties (find the pattern on Ravelry) by Dutch designer Saartje de Bruijn

Because a girl can never have too many pairs of shoes, Baby Girl-to-be also got a pair of  Christine's stay-on booties.  As much fun as it is to try out different patterns, these are classic and will continue to be my go-to gift for some time to come.

I'm so in love with the brown boots. It's just to cute to just be displayed.
