rainbow bright

Here's another little something I knit recently. This silk/cotton yarn was the first yarn I ever bought that wasn't cheap acrylic from the Zeeman. I bought it at this delightful little shop in downtown Den Haag called Woool. I used it to make little baby booties for little baby Bidjai just before we emigrated, and then it emigrated right along with me to this house, where it has been sitting in my yarn cupboard just waiting to be turned into something fun. Well, it waits no more and is now worn by Lara and Julia when they are feeling like brightening up their outfit by a lot.
