Pfiew / Whew


Omdat er hier in Nederland sprake is van een hittegolf en vanwege gezondheidsklachten (vooral bij deze hoge temperatuur) zit ik het liefst rustig binnen. Maar ik heb totaal geen energie en/of zin om iets in miniatuur te doen, dus heb ik de afgelopen dagen maar een beetje ‘gesurft’ op het internet. 
Ik was al een poosje op zoek naar een patroontje om een paar babyslofjes voor baby Rose te maken. En via Pinterest kwam ik op deze Russische link (ik heb de link verwijderd, sorry, maar kijk naar de reactie van Joc!)
Als je de vertaler op deze site gebruikt en goed kijkt naar de duidelijke foto’s kun je de uitleg heel goed volgen. Zo haak je vrij snel een paar eenvoudige babyslofjes en dat is best lekker cool, als het zo warm is :D!

Because of the heatwave here in The Netherlands and my health problems (especially when it is very hot weather) I have to stay calmly indoors. I have surfed these last few days a bit on the internet, due the lack of energy and no desire to make anything in miniature. 
Since a while I was looking for a pattern to make a pair of baby booties for baby Rose. Via pinterest I found this Russian link (I am sorry, but I've removed the link, because of the comment of Joc!)
You can use the translator on this site and there are clear pictures, so you can follow very well the explanation. This way you can quickly crochet this pair of simple baby booties and that’s pretty cool, if it is very hot :D!


Voor het haken van de slofjes heb ik een restje oude, witte katoen en een oude, zeer fijne haaknaald gebruikt (geërfd van mijn moder). Op de haaknaald staat nummer 11, maar ik heb geen idee hoe ik die maat voor mijn buitenlandse lezers moet vertalen, sorry.

For the crocheting of these booties I used a leftover of white, very thin cotton and an old, very fine crochet needle (both are inherited of my mother). On the crochet needle is a number, but I haven’t the slightest idea what size that will be, for translating it to my foreign readers, I am sorry.




Het is al heel lang geleden dat ik iets gehaakt heb, dus zijn de slofjes niet erg netjes en helemaal gelijk aan elkaar gehaakt. Maar voor een eerste poging ben ik er best tevreden over. Het was echt pietepeuterig werk, want ze zijn maar 11 mm groot en nog net ietsje te groot voor Rose.

It is a long time ago that I’ve crochet something, so these booties don't deserve a price for neatness and they are not quite equal to each other. But I am rather satisfied with my first attempt. It was pernickety work, because they are only 11 mm large and still a little too big for Rose.



Om het enkelbandje van het slofje te sluiten heb ik een no hole bead gebruikt.  Nadat ik ze aan haar voetjes had gedaan, trok ze ze in gelijk weer uit! Ach ja, ze heeft zeker ook last van de hitte ;o!

For closing the anklet of the bootie I've used a no hole bead. After I've put the booties at her feet, she immediately pulled them out!  Ah well, I think she also suffers from the heat ;o!

Komende week zal het warm blijven, volgens het weerbericht. 
Dus, voor iedereen, die geen last van de warmte heeft: geniet er fijn van :D!
Dank voor jullie fijne reacties en iedereen een fijne week en/of zomervakantie gewenst.

This coming week it will be hot weather, says the weather forecast. 
So, to everyone who can deal with this heat: enjoy it :D!
Thank you for your kind comments and I wish all of you a nice week and/or Summer holidays.

Hi Ilona, the heat is unbearable here too ;-( good luck staying cool.
Your booties are amazing! How do you do it?? I am only really getting into actually making small things to fill my house now and I struggle with furniture kits!! Lol
Stay well

Vivian Fox zei

Hi Ilona
The little booties are adorable. I honestly don't know how you can make things so teeny tiny :) and you make them so well.
Take care in the heat. Here in Northern Ireland it is close (that means a dead heat - warm with no breeze) but dull :( Maybe we'll get a bit more sunshine before the summer ends...
All the best and take care Ilona
Vivian

The Old Maid zei

Oh yes! I am so waiting for cool weather or a cold breeze at least! I hate when it is so hot like right now over here too.

But OMG those baby shoes! As usual I can't stop thinking how did you make them? That's impossible to crochet something that small!
Splendid work, Ilona!
Hugs

Sarah zei

Verbazingwekkend, is het warm geweest in Ierland ook: D De booties zijn erg schattig, je moet echt blij met deze resultaten na zo lang. Ik zou na een paar rondes hebben gegeven, vormgeven haak op deze schaal! Maak je geen zorgen over de grootte, zal ze uitgroeien tot hen: D

Hi Ilona, I hope it cools down for you...in the meantime, drink lots of cool water and perhaps you will be able to make some more adorable things.XOXO John

Susan@minicrochetmad zei

Nice little bootees, well done! I too can't take heat because of my health, it feels very claustrophobic to be shut indoors when everyone else is enjoying the outdoor summer activities. Spring is very close here where I live in Australia, first signs of spring leaves and flowers appear, so cooler weather is not far away for you.

Daydreamer zei

Oh Ilona, those little booties are adorable!!! I can't believe you crocheted them! I have a very old crochet hook like yours... and can't read the size either! I just need to learn how to use it right! LOL!
I hope you get cooler weather soon... we are having a cool spell and it almost doesn't feel like summer here! But we have to enjoy Summer while it is here! I hope you get lots of rest... and keep surfing the internet!

Plushpussycat zei

Beautiful work, Ilona! I'm glad you found something nice to do in this unbearable heat! We're having a heat wave too. Hopefully it will be over tomorrow (like it was supposed to be over today!). Stay cool, and hopefully things will cool down for both of us soon. xo Jennifer

Nice crocheted booties.
I try to pin the pattern but it is not allowed. Sorry! Users have reported that this url links to spam or inappropriate content.

Dear Ilona,
The booties are perfect!! So tiny!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Many hugs

Idske de Jong zei

Hi Ilona, ik vind het snoepjes! Het is toch heel gewoon dat je als peuter in deze hitte niets aan je voeten wilt? En als je ze niet vlak naast elkaar zet ziet toch niemand dat ze niet helemaal hetzelfde zijn? Ik vind ze gewoon perfekt!

Xandra Dekker zei

Tja...ik denk dat niemand nog zin heeft om iets te doen met deze warmte... Je slofjes zijn leuk geworden.

Fijne zondag en groetjes Xandra

Pepper Mitcheson zei

You've done amazingly well considering the heat. I wouldn't even consider working on something so intricate when I have sweaty palms ;0) Hope it cools down for you soon. Have a lovely weekend =0)

claude zei

what beautiful Rose's botties !
thank you for the link
good week for you

Hairy Caveman zei

Hi Ilona! Surely those booties are the tiniest things anybody could ever crochet by hand!!! You've done an amazing job on something so small, and in the heat of summer! Of course Rose won't appreciate your efforts, but I'm sure she'll be happy enough to wear them in the coming winter!
Kind regards, Brian.

BiWuBär zei

Rose's booties are perfect... I don't know if I've ever asked this before but is there anything you can't do in miniature? *teehee* But although these tiny shoes are so pretty I can fully understand why Rose pulled them off - we're having the same heat wave and this is not my weather for sure. I can't bear heat and I'm living in total darkness indoors these days... *sigh*

So stay cool - and although Schepje can't melt but knowing him I know he wouldn't say no to some icecubes in his drinks and one, two, three, four icecones in his paw... ;O)

Hugs
Birgit

Tatiana zei

Я не представляю, как можно сделать такие маленькие пинетки! Я не дружу с крючком. Правильнее сказать, крючок не хочет со мной дружить!:( :( Вы как всегда великолепно справились с поставленной задачей!!
Вы нашли очень умную собаку!
Желаю прохладной погоды!
Обнимаю
Татьяна

Isabel Ruiz Alonso zei

Son preciosos. ¡Es muy difícil hacer esos patucos tan pequeños!

Contrastes-Rosa Mª zei

Ilona a tener un poco de paciencia y cuídate, tu por el calor y yo por el frió, pasamos de un intenso calor al fío con 11 grados, así que no se cual es mejor.
Los patucos son preciosos, me encantaría intentarlo pues quedan genial.
Muchos besos:-)

Rosethé zei

Ils sont adorables ces petits chaussons !
Enfin, la pluie est arrivée depuis hier, nous avions 39°, ce n'est pas la première fois que nous atteignons cette grosse et insupportable chaleur !
Bon courage Ilona et à bientôt ! rosethé

Drora's minimundo zei

The booties are adorable. Unlike
Birgit, I'm not going to ask as I already know that you can do everything. Your work is both inspiring and gorgeous.
Hugs, Drora

Giac zei

Hallo Ilona,
Geweldig! ze zijn gewoon prachtig. Op de foto's zien ze er perfect. Je bent echt enorm getalenteerd mijn vriend!
Dikke knuffel,

Simona zei

Wow Illona!!! Is it my impression or you are getting into smaller and smaller things?? Wow!! Those shoes are amazingly tiny......and super duper cute!! Well done....I don't want to imagine how difficult that might be......

Piikko zei

Good afternoon Ilona! :) We are having a quite a heath too. I agree with your 'no energy and no desire to make anything'(in miniature). :D Well, but you have successfully used your time for crocheting those adorable baby booties! (whilst I was snoring in my garden swing). I don't think Rosa suffers from the heat. She looks quite a rascal..and clever too. She pulled her booties out just because she can do it! :D -Hugs!
PS. Thanks for announcing my giveaway. I've added Gill's link on my blog. :) -An other hug

Coming back from Ireland the heat in France was a shock, fortunately today it's a bit cooler.
The bootees are amazing. How I love how you dress Patricia's dolls.

Hello Ilona!
The baby booties are adorable! I am not a "stitcher" but can truly appreciate the talent it takes to stitch such small things. Yours are beautifully done.
I wish I could send you some of the lovely cool Summer we are experiencing in Connecticut.......since I cannot I will send good wishes for you to feel better.

Elizabeth S zei

Hi Ilona, We just finished 3 weeks of incredibly high temperatures here on the Canadian South coast so I know just how you are feeling. It is stifling when it gets this hot but the heat wave is over for now, and cooler weather once again prevails... Back to normal!
Your tiny booties could not be Cuter! :)) What a great way to ride out the hot weather. I just don't know how on earth, you managed to keep the white thread so clean? When I get hot and sticky, everything I handle gets grubby!

Hannah zei

Hope the weather gets better for you soon, you know me, I love the heat and I wish it will never go away.. but I can see why other people doesn't love it like I do..

Your baby booties are adorable! My baby girl ripped all footwear off and still loves to be barefoot, so I can understand why they lye on the side like that ;)
Hannah

Cinderella Moments zei

Those little sippers are so gorgeous!! I always love all those special creations of yours. Where you see mistakes, I see amazing perfection. You are way too hard on yourself!
The Blythe face can be carved with Exacto (sharp blade) knives. It's really easy to shave off the plastic after you sand off the gloss. Who knew! It was really fun to do.
Stay cool!
hugs♥,
Caroline

Nono zei

Hi Ilona! Wat schattig slofjes!!! Hoe kan jij zo klein werken, breien of haken ??? Ik ben verbaasd...Jij hebt zeker zeer goede ogen. Rose is very cute!
Hier in Belgie is het ook zeer warm temperatuur... binnen blijven en beneden in de living slapen omdat in de kamer veel te warm is...

So beautiful and tiny.

Winkel's Crazy Ideas zei

They are so sweet, l am impressed with your patience in making them, beautiful work. I had to laugh at the picture of the dog and the fan. Have my children doing that a lot these days, they sing into the fans and it gives them a funny voice ;-). Had 30 celsius degrees inside and 38 celsius outside the other day, l am so knocked out and finding the heat almost more than l can cope with. My illness is far far better in cool weather so next week l am retreating high up into the mountains for a bit. Stay cool and take care, Pam xx

Veronique Blommaart zei

Hallo Ilona,

Ik weet wat voor een gepriegel het is maar goed gelukt hoor! Baby's trekken volgens mij altijd hun sokjes en slofjes uit :-)
Tja, de hitte. Hoewel het nu motregent blijft het benauwd. Ik ga vanavond weer zwemmen hier in de polder! Sterkte en geniet van de tijdelijke afkoeling!

Liefs,

Véronique

Ilona,
It is simply beyond me how you do what you do.. I cannot even imagine crocheting those baby shoes!!!! Beautiful work, my friend.
Thank you so much for your visit and very kind words for Olivia.
