meanwhile, back at the ranch
Remember the booties I was knitting out of the amazing Filatura di Crosa cotton. There they are. Can you tell what's wrong? No? Look closer, you fool! I can hardly stand to look myself in the eye. It's a disgrace.
Do you know that all the time they've been hanging out on my sidebar, waiting to be finished, all I had to do was cast on some extra stitches and knit that *%@!* strap. And what did I do? I knit it on the same side as the original bootie.
As we speak these little fellas have been banned to the Land of Yarn That Time Forgot. They will not be gifted after all.
Now the hat is another story. It's a knitty.com pattern and I'm quite in love with it:
Miss Dashwood Bonnet
Knit from: Filatura di Crosa Baby Lovely
Knit on: size 5 Addi Turbo circular needles and size 5 Crystal Palace double pointed needles
Time to knit: one round trip train ride to NJ, one season finale episode of Lost (which was CRAZY, btw! Ah!)
