Now an additional down side to not knowing, is that I had NO TIME TO KNIT for my new nephew. It isn't like I only knit occasionally and could run out and buy a gift and feel guilty in private. I knit every day and they know it. This is a woman who I owe an endless debt to for what she has given to my daughter. SO, that being said, these will be the first of MANY baby gifts to come.Crocheted Baby Sneaker Booties From Sue's Crochet and Knitting
I used scrap white acrylic and scrap blue cotton (no idea where the labels are)
I added the little stripes down the side to make them a bit more "sporty".
There will probably be A LOT of shoes to come. Since they live in Miami, there aren't a lot of knitted items they would need. I may throw some sewing posts in too - I hope you all don't mind.
Over the weekend, while I unpacked, I rewarded myself with knitting (after the booties were done obviously). I also made this:
It is just K4, P4 in a approx. 12" x 12" square and folded and sewn down in thirds.
In an effort to "green" my house, I have stopped buying sponges (among other things) and I need washcloths for dishes. Now, there are a few of you that will have a few comments about this as I am not a "wash cloth knitter". Some people LOVE it - they like that it is quick or they like to practice new stitches. Well, simply put, I don't. This was a purely functional knit - nothing else. SO, those of you who are smirking right now (and you KNOW who you are - CORINNE - by the way, I haven't seen a blog in a while) YOU HAVE NOT pulled me over to the "wash cloth knitter side" any more than those thinking that they have pulled me over to the "crocheter side" just because I did the booties. I am allowed to blur the lines of "Knitter" every so often and still be a "Knitter".
Well, just so that you know that it is REALLY me, with the crochet and wash cloth and what not, here is the gratuitous "Baby" picture:
