These Booties Are Made For Walking.....

And that's just what they'll do

One of these days, these booties are gonna walk all over you.

They are NEVER this calm. Within seconds of this picture being taken, Dan was up and running. Jack is the sick one, and he's super whiny when he's not sleeping

Working on the Booties

I've been working on Baby booties.

I forgot my stitch markers so I used some paper clips at work. Had to use my #5 double points as stitch holders too. So I was a bit unprepared for making them the other day. At least I had my needles and yarn!

I don't have any pictures to post with this entry, since I'm at work and haven't uploaded the latest pictures.

I finished my niece's hat. I am so proud of it! I didn't use a pattern and got it the right size without doing a swatch. I used some Microspun I had bought awhile ago, and did a little rose at the top of it that I found in Knitting Over The Edge

Was very easy to make and it made it more girly.

I had picked up the Tea and Sympathy Shawl I've been working on for my SIL that I haven't knitted on for awhile.
Kevin and I were watching The Land of the Dead last night (not scary, just gory) and I decided to try and finish this thing, when I started making some stupid mistakes.

I know this pattern inside and out, since I've done 3 of them already. But I didn't increase when I should have and in the middle of a normal knit row, I did the wrap yarn over bit. So I'm just gonna frog the whole thing and make one of the Spiral Scarfs I had made my sister for her Birthday.

I left that at home and will work on that tonight (hopefully) but for now I brought the yarn and pattern for the Baby Booties I'm making my Nephew Mateo. They are the cute little blue runners on the cover.

So, can you tell that I figured out the neat little button for linking?

Birthday knitting

Sucks to have a birthday in December. My little sister's birthday is on the 8th, so I knitted her up this really cute scarf.

I used Lion Brand Wool Ease in Rose Heather. The pattern called for homespun *shudder* and the moonlight mohair.

I think I might knit me one of these. So easy and cute.

The Pattern


We've actually got snow today! I didn't believe we would, we rarely do when they say we will. It's getting really white out there too!

Look how big those snow flakes are!!

It's even more white now. This was just in the 1st 10 mins of it coming down
