Pretty in Pink

Sweet baby niece needs Christmas. And while I am bah humbugging my way through the season, she is only 2 and needs prezzies! So....


I knit her the Make Believe Crown from Interweave Knits. Its available for free from Knitting Daily now.

Crown 2

This is a super quick and easy knit. But it wasn't what I started on. Nope.


These are Twinkle Toes from Knitty. Little tiny ballet slippers complete with knitted ties!

Slippers 2

The pattern is written in sizes from Toddler to adult, so you can knit your own ballet slippers if you would like. These took no time at all!

Thanks to my special model. A doll made by my great-grandmother on my mom's side!

They look great! What a cute crown. She'll be a very pretty ballerina princess. What every little girl wants to be.
