Booties Galore


Finally. Someone I know is pregnant! I get to knit for an actual baby, not just for the love of tiny little things. I used Frog Tree Pima Silk for the seed stitch booties, and oh my, it is wonderful to work with. I'm not exactly sure what it is about cotton/silk blend yarn that makes me so happy ... maybe it's the softness, the way it glides smoothly over the needle, or the slight sheen. Or maybe all three.

Matching caps are in the queue.


Yesterday I went to San Francisco with my family and needed an easy knitting project for the drive there, so I started another ripple scarf using the same pattern as the Apple Tree scarf. You might remember this Fairytale yarn from when it arrived last spring. This pattern gets pretty tedious after a while, but I really like how it looks with the variegated yarn.

We are having an uncommonly cool summer (hopefully I didn't just jinx it), which might be why I am getting enthusiastic about knitting again after a short break.

The booties are precious and so is the scarf! I love the colors and the pattern!

I should get away from this heat here and come to where it is cool. It has been severely hot here day after day!

Have a blessed day my friend! HUGS!

I love the scarf, but I know what you mean. Scarves can get tedious. I tend to knit them for a while, then put them down for a while.

Don't you love baby knitting? I love the pretty colors in your scarf. I wish you'd send some of your unusually cool weather here to scare off our unusually hot weather!
