Snowdrop Shoes



I usually say that the items in my shop are unique, but just for once I thought I would make some of my Baby Bee Shoes that are exactly the same (except for the size). 

I thought it would make a good extra photo for the pattern, and emphasise that it contains instructions for two sizes: 0-3 months and 3-6 months. I love this wool, which is Jaeger Luxury Tweed, and was left over from a pullover. I clearly misjudged how much to buy, as I have also used this to knit a dog coat, and still have more left. It is so fluffy that the shoes almost look as if they are felted.

The other reason I embroidered snowdrops was that the snowdrop season will be with us soon. I have seen a few garden snowdrops online, but has anyone seen any wild ones yet?
