Forgotten Friday - Something Different

This weeks posting for Forgotten Friday is a little different then normal, but never the less I think it qualifies for this. I was asked at the beginning of the week if I had any of the baby shoes that I used to make on my Knitting Machine. For a long time I had a box with pairs in but over the last year and a half it's been dipped into either as gifts for new arrivals or if someone asked if I could make some. Eventually the box ran dry and I had none left, so yesterday I uncovered my knitting machine clean and dusted it off, sat down and made these two pairs. It was the first time I've used my machine in over a year and it took me over 30 minutes just to find the pattern that had been put away, but not with the baby patterns, so I had to go through several files before I found it. I'm not sure that I have time to make any more before I go away next month (only a week to go now, not sure I'm going to enjoy living out of a suitcase for a month), but I am intending to make some more when I return.

Thank you for taking the time to look.

These are so pretty Sue - I've not used my knitting machine for YEARS and have completely forgotten how. It would be a steep learning curve to get back to it now I'm sure.
