Socks and Booties and Toesy Warmers All Around!

There was an awesome DIY Trunk Show in my old neighborhood this weekend that I attended with my good friend Vel. We are both 'wanna-be' crafters, taking baby steps when we have the time to complete projects, and both probably think our jobs get in the way of these more fun pursuits. There were all sorts of cool people there with their fun items. Lots of knitters and bag-makers, jewelry makers, and even a fun guy who made coasters out of rocks! But 'due' to (pun intended) a pregnant friend at work, I have been keeping my eyes open for the perfect baby gift for her. I knew I had found it when I came across these adorable little webbed booties!

Not only did she sell me the booties, but I also got the pattern (which also can be made into little orange/yellow ducky feet), and then she offered to give me yarn to make another pair of froggy feet! The designer is Jen, and her lable is Blue Canary Creations. AREN'T THEY JUST THE CUTEST LITTLE THINGS YOU'VE EVER SEEN? I about squeeled when I saw them.

In other news, which is totally unrelated, except for the fact that it sort of has to do with feet as well, I think I may have found the photo of Suki I want to submit to :

This is one of her favorite spots...inside Steve's sock 'drawer'. Those are all clean socks. But they won't be for long. It's better than having cat fur all over his clothes though!

Woo hoo! Thanks for linking to me! Enjoy the booties, and let me know how you do with the pattern! Evidently you're a whiz with the dpn's now, so it should be a snap!
