Happy New Year to you all!
It has been so long since I last wrote a blog post! Unfortunately I had a very bad year last year, three family members sadly passed away, one being my lovely dad and the day after his funeral I sadly had to have my gorgeous little dog put to sleep! So as you can imagine I didn’t get much crocheting done, I lost my ‘cromo’ (crochet motivation). When I mentioned this to my daughter she said ‘oh I will buy you one’ until I told her what it meant! Haha.
Anyway, of course I eventually got my ‘cromo’ back and started making these cute crochet baby boots with laces, which are different to the ones I have made before on my other blog post Crochet Baby Booties.
After the first pair I made turned out well, I made more in different colour combinations. Some I made with different coloured soles to the tops with matching laces.
I bought the pattern for these cute baby boots from Ravelry, they are called Combat Boots and the pattern is by Alana Harley, I will put the link to the pattern at the bottom of the page. They can be made in four different sizes, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-12 months and 12-18 months. The yarn I used to make these was Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran, this is a different yarn to the one I normally use, which is Stylecraft. I was really impressed with this yarn and will definitely be using it again. The website I bought the yarn from is a great find, its called Love Crafts and as well as selling yarns it has loads of free patterns for crochet and knitting.
I will get back to my crocheting now, I’m currently making a ‘call the midwife blanket’, which I will show you in another post.
