Upon hearing the fantastically exciting news that my friends Pippa and Steven are expecting their first child, I managed to stop bouncing around long enough to grasp my knitting needles and set to on a mini project for a mini peep!
Yes, there are some beautiful gifts available to buy for a fluffy new bundle of joy, but I simply could not resist knocking up a pair of teeny weeny booties, especially for the new arrival. I found the pattern on the most glorious of knitting websites Ravelry, grabbed a couple balls of soft yarn and whipped up these beauties. I added the little knitted bows at the back, just to jazz things up a touch, and chose the alternating colours as a step away from the traditional pink for a girl, blue for a boy.
I am so pleased that mum and dad 'to be' were happy with the little parcel, and although it will most likely be nice and warm over in New York, by the time the little jelly bean appears, she will no doubt be the most stylish kiddo in town!!
