Nutkin II in Mixed Berry Lorna's Laces. The pattern is a variation on Nutkin, which is a lot of fun to knit, but after I knit a pair as written, I decided to make some changes.

To take the picture, the Fool asked me to stand in the sunny square cast on the living room floor. Spoot wanted to enjoy the sun too, so here she is waiting for us to go away so she can sit down.
