Current WIP count: 6
I need to stop saying that things will be simple or won’t take me long.
Here are just a few of my attempts at the soles for these baby bootees
I tried to just follow this pattern from Bonita Patterns, my usual, and the soles turned out absolutely perfect! But it turns out the lilac ‘dk’ yarn is about half the thickness of the grey ‘dk’. No idea which is correct, I just know that the two of them weren’t working together that way.
Then I tried some darker purple yarn with a different pattern. I like the sole, but the yarn didn’t feel that nice and it just didn’t go as well with the grey.
Then I tried doubling up the lilac with that rounded sole. Gorgeous, but preemie size.
So I tweaked the pattern a little to make it bigger, and I finally have a workable sole that looks okay with a grey upper.
I’ve also worked a few more rows on my rainbow Tunisian jumper, I’m now up to the red and orange colour combo. Just red and burgundy to go and that’ll be my first ever sleeve finished.
So that’s my week so far. Anyone else having yarn trouble? Got some WIPs to share? Let me know in the comments!
