I love this pattern, it’s quick to knit, comes with simple instructions and uses up left over yarn from bigger projects. Actually what does quick to knit mean? For me quick to knit means I can finish the project in a week. But even that doesn’t really mean anything because some weeks I only have a couple of hours free for knitting while other weeks I can find 20 hours for knitting. At a guess I think it has taken me about 8 hours to make these boots, that includes sewing up time. Which for me is quick knit, unlike Raewyn’s gloves which are taking about 40 hours per glove!
Time is important at the moment because these boots are for Mika who turns 1 today, but I have a back log of baby knitting to catch up on. Felicity was born last December – but hers are nearly ready, then there is Karen who has just had twin boys, then there is Faye, Elena, Jenny, Christy and Elin all due in the summer, and a good friend told me last night that she is pregnant and due in November, so lots of baby knitting on the way.
