Cute Boots

zoe book

I bought this book about ten years ago, and I have used it a lot to make bootees as gifts for friends with new babies.

I put it in my bag along with some needles and spare yarn, and whilst at Cornerstones tried a pattern I’d not done before. Jester Boots!

Very happy with finished result. Easier than I thought to make. I substituted Pompoms for Zoe’s Bells on the toes. I have got some little bells at home – but I felt that pompoms were just as much fun, and softer too.

I made the pompoms using the fork method [see here] holding a strand of red and of white wool together, and winding round 30 times.

  1. Those jester boots are fab! I'd love to be able to knit them for my impending great-nephew/niece (how come I'm old enough to be a great aunt?!) but I don't have the knitting know-how, I fear!
    I've enjoyed catching up on your posts now I'm back at home. Happy (belated) anniversary to you and Bob.
