Debbie Bliss and Silk slippers

Have you ever asked yourself "what on earth am I going to do with that single skein of Debbie Bliss pure silk yarn that I purchased on a whim?"

Well.... for those of you who (like me) could not resist the allure of the odd skein, the answer is shoes for miniature people!

I first discovered this pattern for baby mary janes about a year ago and immediately made three pairs for an expected baby girl. I found that they work well in cotton, but are truly exceptional when made in silk.
You can also have fun personalising them with decorations (such as rosebuds and pretty buttons.)
I think these make a fabulous gift for a newborn baby girl. I've given more details on my ravelry projects page, here...

Anyway I plan to make many more of these using my little stash of Debbie Bliss silks, below... (yes, this is gratuitous yarn porn.)
