I finally finished them! I am definitely going through a funk. Normally, a project like this would only take a couple of hours at most, but this time it took me three days…at least. I just could not get into the project: changing from a Boye to a Bates to a Clover hook, as one of my primary reasons. I think working at such a tight gauge also threw me off. I am, however, very proud of the finished object. The first time I made these, I fudged up the pattern and counts. This time, despite the counts not being exact, the outcome is much better. I even went as far as to buy the buttons and sew them on!
My friend Eve is having twins: a boy and a girl. In case you can’t tell the difference above, the booties with the scalloped edge are for the girl and the booties with the crab stitch edge are for the boy. The color was one of three requested by the mother. Last I heard, mom was in the hospital, under observation. I need to find out where she is so I can deliver my gift.
