Peargirl Elvish Baby Booties
Peargirl Knits: Elvish (Quenderin) is a word that refers to any of the languages of the Elves, or all of them collectively, in J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle earth. All of the Elven languages descend from the Primitive Quendian. I use the name to describe these baby booties for their Elvish quality, suitable for Elves and Human babies alike.
