Have I mentioned how much I hate seaming these little suckers? But hey..... they are DONE!

Here is a close up of the cute pink fish button.

Onto the next project! Do I dare say socks? Maybe I should finish my daughter's bolero I started months ago!?

Here they are as of two days ago.

As of yesterday I had one seamed and one to go. I hate seaming these things!!! Then I just have to attach the teeny tiny button on and I think I'm done with booties for a while.

I'm thinking of socks next? Not too sure though. I'll post pictures of these as soon as I can force myself to finish seaming the other one.

So. My son's teacher was pregnant and I brought her these booties on the last day of school. It was my first Debbie Bliss pattern and I think in general, her pattern sucked! I'm a very visual person. I guess she thinks that anyone who buys Adorable Knits for Tots: 25 Stylish Designs for Babies and Toddlers doesn't need help in visualizing something like this. Luckily, I just happened to see a similar pattern in another book of hers for beginners where they did show what it looked like pre-seaming. I don't know, maybe it's just me but I like to know what I'm knitting before I knit a pattern. I would have never imagined they'd look like this!

Anyway, they turned out really well and she loved them. Her baby was really teeny so she has yet to put them on him. She said she'll send me a picture as soon as she does. So, in the meantime, we have this example.

Ah ha!

I'm walking out the door and will come back to this. But for now I'll post the picture of the adorable booties I made for my son's kindy teacher who had a baby boy this summer.

Currently I'm making the same pair but in a really pretty cranberry color. I love this Rowan Cotton Glace. It has such a great feel to it.

I'm leaving now.... REALLY!

Is this thing on?

It can't be possible that I haven't updated this since February! Is that true? Yikes. I haven't been knitting very much but I know for sure I've completed a few things since then. I need to find the pictures and update this thang. I'm feeling the cool weather in the air which means it's time to get motivated again to knit. I'm also going to be joining the Secret Pal 6. If anything, that will get me motivated to get some new projects going.

Actually..... the thing that will really get me going is when Carole moves here!! I can't wait to have her here to knit with. You'd think since I started the Albuquerque Stitch 'n' Bitch I'd be getting my butt there but life has just been taking over everything. I'm going to make an effort to update this some more today and finish knitting these baby booties that were supposed to be done about a month ago! I'll find the other ones I've completed and post them. They're from Debbie Bliss' Adorable Knits for Tots.

Kids are calling so I'll be back in a bit!
