Occasional Knitting Content
I've been finishing up the set for Annette's grandson. The day before yesterday, the hat went AWOL for several hours. I was going berserk looking in places like under the couch cushions. Eventually the Little Emperor found it under the big green chair. Thank goodness! I didn't want to make another and I promised Annette I'd have the set done before we leave town on Friday.
I'm using Christine's Baby Booties pattern for the booties. It's a little fiddly for such a small item, but I like the results. If they really do stay on a baby's foot, it's worth the effort. I never tried on my own guys, but I know that most stuff that went on feet came off in short order.
Time to think of a vacation project. This needs to be something that can stop and start with little thought. Maybe a top-down raglan for one of the kids. I've got some Cotton Ease in bright kid colors...
Off to cast on for the other bootie.
