I've always liked knitting and crocheting, which is amazing for someone with the patience of a two year old. The problem is that knitting is not exactly a Tropical-friendly craft, so I have moved on to other crafty things, even if once-in-a-while I dig up my needles and yarn.
These slippers were made a couple of years ago from a modified version of these ballet slippers I found on Knitty. They are pretty simple, and make a great gift for the little princesses. It takes little time to knit them and use very little yarn.
I knit these with a fresh cotton yarn to keep them from becoming too hot, after all, it's always summer here. They'll also make great room shoes to keep the wee feet warm in colder winters.
The cute pink socks were also made from another Knitty pattern. The white ones were simple toe-up socks in two different colors. Knit in thin cotton yarn with the same variegated pink they other ones were cool enough for the heat here.
Socks also make great gifts for the kids ones, and for those who live in colder climates, a thicker wool yarn will make some cozy, warm socks that little feet will love.
