How can anybody resist?

My friend has just become a grandma for the first time and I simply HAD to make these lovely bootees for the new little girl.

They're in this book (see top picture below). 

Not very good photos, I'm afraid.

It was a real fiddle to make these but SUCH a fun pattern. I LOVE fiddly things as they're such a challenge!!!

These look even tinier tham my favourite Rebecca Jones booties! Did you tat them in 80?

Jane Eborall said...

No, WAY, Maureen!!! Size 80 would’ve been even harder!! I used size 20.

I'm having trouble keeping up with your blog again!

The baby booties are darling, and I assume they are for decorative purposes. A great keepsake, especially on the Christmas tree each year. And you're an expert at making boxes!

The Christmas tree and puppets are also wonderful. And you're moving right along with the Crochet project. Great use of recycled yarn!

It's amazing to realize that your blog was one of the first tatting blogs going back to 2006! Your patterns had lots of split rings even then, and I'm wondering when you first started designing with them, Although I don't do SRs that often, I appreciate all your innovative patterns using them.

I was delighted to recently obtain a copy of Pam Palmer's book, and I'm also pleased that she has photos of herself in it! I'm hoping to try the kitty also!

I'm curious to know if there are any photos of Mary Konior in her books. I don't recall seeing any photos of her!

Ha, ha, Kathy!!! Without my blog I’d be lost as it’s a record for myself of what I’m up to and what I’ve done in the past!!
The split rings came about when I got hold of Mary Sue Kuhn’s book on them back in the 1980’s. I’d been tatting then for around 20 years so it was a real stimulation to find them. I didn’t really use them a lot at first as nobody else knew how to make them.
Now you mention it - I’ve never seen pictures of Mary either.
