These boots are made for walking (or not!)...

Posted by Zoe Fletcher on Friday, February 20, 2015 babies on the cards for me yet! However, whenever the chance to make something small and cute for a new addition to friends and family comes along I jump at the chance to get out my British wool stash...

These beautiful little boots are made from 100% British Beulah Speckled face sheep yarn! Worsted spun with a light and dark twist! The recipients parents don't know if it will be a boy or a I went for a neutral colour that will go with anything!!

They were knitted on two needles with only a little ribbing and sewing up to simple!!
I made up the pattern as I went along...and will get it written down and posted up here soon (email me if you want it sooner!)

I'm pretty pleased with the result...and can't wait to report back on how the lucky little one looks in them!!


Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
