Mary Jane Baby Booties pattern coming soon!

I love these Mary Jane Baby Booties!

The pattern is being tested right now and I will post it very soon! I made these while I was on vacation last week, (more on my vacation below!) Seems everyone has a bit of left over worsted weight and this pattern doesn’t take that much. The dark blue slipper fits a 1 year old, the pink are about 6-9 months and the baby blue ones are for a newborn - 3months. With the slippers pictured above I used the same pattern but different hook sizes.

If you've read my blog before you know I love slippers (being from Minnesota when it gets downright artic cold and having a mom that knits, I know slippers!) BTW, my adult version of Mary Jane Slippers are still in testing, once the warm weather came around they got “the back seat” but the baby slippers seem to be a year-round hit.

Our family vacation was really fun, there is so much to see and do in the Black Hills/Badlands area. We had 5 days camping in Custer State Park on Sylvan Lake, on Needles Hwy. That is a beautiful area, the boys hiked and swam and hiked some more. We got to see Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, tour Jewel Cave, and hit the mammoth dig in Hot Springs. Then we stayed in a hotel with a pool in Deadwood for a day before we left. I developed an abscessed tooth and was in agony by the 3rd day. I saw a dentist in Deadwood, SD and an x-ray proved I needed a root canal. After a few rainy nights in a leaky tent, an achy tooth, this mommy was super cranky and the hotel was much needed. We ended our trip 2 days early, I got a root canal, and I’m on the mend. Gosh, what an ordeal!!

Here is a picture of us on the “wild life loop” of Custer State Park. Yep, that is a herd of buffalo (or bison) in the back ground and yes, my boys have guns, they’re only toy guns but someone needed to protect us from the wild herd of grazing buffalo.

Love the Mary Janes...

That pic of you and the family is great. Tonight I got to feel some buffalo fiber that a lady is spinning. It is some of the softest stuff you can ever imagine!
