Thanks so much for all of the nice comments you've left, everyone! I really love to read them all.
I have put down the dishcloths for a couple of days, and found another pattern to become obsessed with.
This is such a cute, quick knit! I'd been seeing such adorable versions of Christine's Baby Booties, that I had to give the pattern a try. Luckily for me, there is a neighbor, who has a little boy in LD's class, and she has just had a baby girl!
I'm planning on finishing the pink ones, and making another pair for her. The multi-colored ones are a little bit bigger. I know it's hard to tell from the photo. I think I'll give these two pair to the Mommy and let her decide if the third pair should be in the bigger or smaller size.
Then, I am going to make a pair or two for a friend who graduated high school with me. Her mother told me she is expecting a baby. Her first! I took the booties to the library to show them off, and she told me. She's very excited!
As soon as I finish the icord ties, I'll take a better pic to put on my finished objects blog. I'll give all of the yarn, and needle details on there.
You know the Koigu from the last post? I am thinking about some lacy socks for myself. Here's a random bit of info about me. I have never knit socks in a solid color before! I have done almost solid handdyed socks, but they were slightly stripy, and speckly. This will be my first time using Koigu, and my first time knitting with a solid colored yarn. Weird!
Remember to click on the pic and see those adorable little booties big!
Well, I have to go do laundry and the dishes. (and vacuum and sweep) That way, I can knit guilt free!
Have a great weekend, and knit on, everybody!!
