Booties. Cute. Small. Simple. Why are these things giving me so much trouble. I realize it has more to do with the pain in the neck situation, but they are not helping with the frustration level. After completing 2 pairs, one following the directions and one not so much, you would think I would be more attentive.
All I really wanted was a simple, mindless project to work on while dealing with the head, people!!!
Spinning has been an option, but that doesn't work very well in the car.
I printed out several different baby bootie patterns made from various yarn weights. Tuesday, my intention was to whip out the Little Man Socks. Nope. The yarn did not like my choice. Rip, rip, rip. So, instead, started the Churchmouse Wee Ones Stay on Baby Booties...twice. Back on track now...

Lately, while knitting or cleaning house, I have been listening to audio books downloaded through the Overdrive app on my phone. Now I fully understand why children love being read to at bedtime. Not sure how many chapters I have missed because I fell asleep while listening. If I'm in the car by myself, I play the books through the car stereo and thankfully, that has not put me to sleep. My latest author obsession is Jen Lancaster... she also blogs here. Her books are totally cracking me up!
P.S. Be sure to check out the links below to find other crafter/bloggers that perhaps are not so intimidated by baby feet!
P.P.S. fyi, finally got the Etsy shop up and running. Only a handful of items there right now as my eyes cross at the prospect of loading everything in all at once. There is a handy dandy little linky button on the top right of the page, that, surprisingly enough, actually works despite having been created in the middle of the night while heavily pain medicated.
