Warning: there is a level of adorable in this picture that might be disturbing to some viewers.
That wee little bootie can’t possibly fit a real foot, could it? I mean I have two babies but they weren’t really that small. Were they? I felt the same way opening that first pack of newborn diapers too.
Anyway, since I took the picture last night I moved the buttons closer to the toe of the bootie so that straps would fit better and dealt with all those tails. This pattern produces an insane number of tails but most of them are useful so that’s a plus. The sweater buttons are waiting to see which side they need to be sewn on (I’ll be leaving yarn and a needle out for Fava while we’re in the hospital 🙂
Next up will be the other wee little bootie. Then a pair of pink and purple to go with the other sweater and if I can get to Michael’s before the coupon expires I’ll get a set of small double point needles for a pink and/or purple hat too. With 3(!!!) weeks to go I can totally pull that off. And cast on a simple something that wont require much brain power for after the kidlet makes an entrance.
As for reading I’m still enjoying Sherlock Holmes. Did you see there is another new Watson/Holmes show coming out in the fall? Maybe I’m just overly aware because I’m reading it but it seems like there are a ton of versions coming out right now. I figured out this week that they’ll make good reading while nursing – short installments, language that makes you feel smart, and the nook is ideal for one handed reading 🙂 And there are still about 1000 pages left between the two volumes I have.
I’m also reading Style, Sex, and Substance edited by Hallie Lord. A very sweet friend lent it to me and I am really enjoying it. I’m not very far into it to say much but I could totally have written Hallie Lord’s chapter about finding balance between style and modesty (yeah, trying to become invisible through her style -or lack thereof- that was totally me. And I would still hid in my clothes most of the time if left to my own devices.) But I can also totally agree with her statement that dressing nicely just feels better. Schlepy clothes lead to a schlepy attitude. I can’t wait to see what the other contributors have to say on the other topics.
And now I’m off to link up with Ginny. And check out what else is going on ’round the blogs. And cast on that other stinkin’ cute bootie. Happy Yarn Along!
