Baby Mary Janes

Pattern: Baby Merry Jane (pdf) by Bekah.knits from Etsy

Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
Colour: Chocolate and Fresh Cream
Needle: 2.75mm
Buttons: from the button stash
Size: 6-12 month

Knitted over two evenings (one "merry jane" per night). Shoe is knitted on straight needles, sock is knitted in the round after picking up stitches.
Changes I made: I knitted five more rounds of the sock in st stitch before starting the cuff, I also changed the rib of the cuff from k1 p1 to k2 p2.
I am working on the Toddler Moc-a-Soc at present, I have dropped down a needle size as the gauge was off. Next time I knit the Merry Jane's I will drop down to 2.5 or 2.25mm.
