The one where I’m becoming infatuated


with Pinterest.  I finally got my invite last Friday, so I spent time over the weekend just getting familiar with the site, learning how to navigate around and looking at different projects and ideas.  I see a lot of Pinterest in my future.

Here’s one of my WIPs for today – the Debbie Bliss Bunny Booties.  This time around it’s been a lot easier, there’s something to be said for practice.  All told, I’ve probably knitted six booties all together, two practice, two finished but permanently maimed in a nasty scissor encounter and finally, the new, nearly completed pair.  Hopefully by tomorrow evening they’ll have their ears, faces and pompom tails.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

Here’s a peek –

Cutest things I’ve seen in a while, without a doubt.  I’m sure they’ll be a hit at the baby shower Saturday.  Can’t wait to see them on baby Harper’s feet!

The Papoose and family will be here tomorrow evening.  One more thing to look forward to.  It seems like a long time between visits, about a month, I need some Susannah love.

Life is good.

The one where I want to throw


up.  The Bunny booties?  Yeah, well, last night I was tweaking the ears a little, I just wasn’t satisfied with the way I had sewn one on and in the process of trying to fix it, I cut a hole in the bootie.  A hole as in big enough to stick a finger through.  WTF?!  Now what?, start from scratch again with the same pattern or give up and pick a different one?  Really, at the moment my attitude is so bad that I don’t care if I never knit another bootie in this life.  Gah!!
