Accomplishments Abound

Well, you all got to see the “before picture”, here is the “AFTER”:

The highlight of my day was heading over to my local yarn store to pick up yarn to make knit baby UGGs. The pattern is so freakin adorable I could cry! Apparently Boroco no longer makes their “suede” yarn, so I opted for a silk/linen blend in a DK/sport weight. Then, I found this fabulous fuzzy yarn called Woolie Bullie to do the seaming and the accents so that they look like real UGGs.

After finishing the sole, I looked at how big they were, looked at the pattern, and realized that the smallest the bootie goes is 3-6 months, so I will be ripping it out, doing a little math, and making a new pattern for a “newborn” size.

Just in case THOSE don’t melt your heart, I picked up this pattern and a crochet hook to make these Sugar and Spice Booties by The Lovely Crow. If you have facebook, go “like” her page ASAP! She has the most adorable baby booties and shoe patterns ever! She sells the PDF right off of her facebook page.

I would really love to get these booties done this weekend, but at the same time I want to make my quilt top. So, I think I may ammend my goal list. I will be reworking the UGG pattern, laying out my quilt, knitting one of the soles, cutting the remaining pieces of my quilt top, and then heading to church to see two very special friends get baptised on Sunday. Think I can do it? hmmmm….

I’ll keep you posted through out the weekend.
