again with the cute ...
The Baby Sandal.
Knitted from the Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino book, but in an 8ply cream wool from stash.
This pattern was a minor headache (which goes some way to explaining why thus far it is a singleton. Um, just like the eeny teeny baby sock. The attention span of a two day old gnat, I have). I couldn’t make head nor tail of some bits of it, and ended up googling debbie+bliss+baby+sandal+cashmerino+HELP! I came across a smattering of fellow bloggers moaning about the notoriously vague nature of Debbie Bliss patterns, and breathed a small sigh of relief that I wasn’t alone. None of the google results was of any assistance, mind, but there is comfort in being part of a wider teeth-gnashing group, and I soldiered on, guesstimating what to do next. The second sandal has been ripped back twice now and I’ve temporarily lost interest.
Besides, some delicious red 8ply has arrived from Bendigo Woollen Mills (because in my two suitcases full of stashed yarns I can’t find what I need; what is with that?) and I’m happily ensconced in another tomato hat (or should that be cherry?) for the littlest cherry in the Born Lucky household.
In other news, I've just taken part in an academic study on op shopping.
