On the First Day of Christmas...

My true love gave to me... A pair of mini Elf Boots!

Now- you've all seen these before, but I just had to go back to this pattern the other day. I absolutely love the pattern and the finished result.

As I have mentioned time and time again, there are no little 'elves' in my immediate family, (and my intense urges to knit for these non-existent people frankly scares the life out of me), but I can think of no more satisfying project than this!

How festive, how delicate, how absolutely whimsical.

Pattern? It's a re-visit from the Sock Summit. Sivia Harding's Blossom Dearies.
Yarn? 1 ball of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (with LOADS left over).
Needle? 3.5mm double points.

These mini boots have a place on my shelf over the holiday season, and will likely drive any male visitor out of my house in a flash, but that's ok.

Walk on.
I've got more Elf boots on the needles mister.
