Twinkle, twinkle little toe!


When I saw these over at knitty, there was no way to get around them.

At first glance I knew immediately that they were just right as a birthday present for my friend, who´s a cutie².
I browsed the web to see how the pattern would work (okay, and to take a sneak peak what other people do...) and found some very wonderful Twinkletoes in different colors and sizes in blogland. Seems many people have them on their to-do-list, too!
See some more Twinkletoes over at flickr.

I chose a very soft, fluffy yarn (cool wool) in a pale pink, grabbed some 4.0 mm needles and off I went.

Things I´ve learned while knitting these nice ballerina shoes:
- I love the right and left lifted increase. Looks very distinguished...
- I don´t like wrap & turn and take up the wraps in the next row(s). I did w&t before, but this time it was just bugging me.
- Sewing leather soles to a knit thing is boring. I did it anyways, as I don´t want my ballerina to slip and break a leg... wouldn´t be a nice present. *g*
- If you make one pair as a present, you´ll surely be needing one pair for yourself. They´ll look very cute in black, don´t you think?!


These cuties are quick to make and fun to knit. You should cast on some for yourself!

  4. Sure? I mean, if a certain pirate appears... and invites you to a dance. Or a man, who usually dislikes dancing but makes an exception for you? Huh?
