Little Claire has some booties to match her blanket now! Yesterday I started on these cute little crochet booties that I found on Ravelry. (I bought the pattern here. If you go to her shop, look around, there's all kinds of cute things there!) They really came together fast and the pattern was well written. I don't normally follow patterns well because I like to put my spin on things, but yesterday was one of those lazy sort of days when I just wanted to follow a pattern and not have to think about it.
The pattern calls for two soles, one is gray and one is pink. I think the two soles give the bootie a real shoe feel, because it holds it's shape nicely. I may crochet a pink pair too (with a gray sole), and I think I'll try just one sole this time and see how it goes. I don't mind it being softer and more like a bootie, especially in the size 0.
I still haven't started on the Little Silas booties yet because I've been waiting on a knitting book to get here! I thought about making him a pair of these while I wait. :) Pretty cute huh?
I better run! Today is "Paw Paw Day" and we've got to get out the door! I'm taking the blankets along to keep me busy. :) xo, Sam
