Been quite a while since I had a fab new book to squeal about and now it seems I am spoilt for choice! Made in France: Baby Booties was one of the new arrivals in store last month, and I love it. I can even get past the fact that a ply is not given on any page or pattern. There is a tension square in either stocking stitch or garter stitch and needle sizes are given. Because of this I would be loathe to recommend the book for a beginner knitter, you would need a little confidence.
There are wonderful diagrams and instructions for techniques at the front and the 18 designs have the beautiful photography and clear instructions we have come to expect from the Made in France crowd.
It could just be because I am clucky but I love the Roman Sandals, little chubby feet in them … you just want to eat them. I also love the Magic Moccasins, so simple, with 6 variations. That is nearly one for every day of the week.
This dear little book full of delicious little people with smartly decorated feet can be yours for just $25.00 and is available now online or in store.
