52 Weeks of Literary Crafts: Red and Gold Baby Booties

Is this another Harry Potter knitting project? Yep! It is! Two of my best friends recently told me they were having a baby, and since they’re both proud Gryffindors I wanted to knit them a whole set of Gryffindor baby supplies. I also planned on knitting them some stuff too (like matching scarves and hats), but that’s another story. I’ll post a photo of the whole set once it’s done.

For now I wanted to make some cute Gryffindor inspired baby boots. I know these ones aren’t striped, but I thought solid colored booties may go better with different outfits, and thus get more use (it’s not like they’ll fit a growing baby for an extended period of time).

I’ve never knitted any booties though, so this was a learning process for me. I ended up following this tutorial, which did a wonderful job laying it all out. All things told it took me about an hour per pair of booties. Not bad all things considered.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
