New Booties ~~


I learned of an incredible yarn website from one of my etsy hooker friends recently and I found they carry some really lucious colors in wool. I spent about an hour making my choices, met the requirement for free shipping and then waited impatiently for '3 whole days!" (Which I consider fast shipping, really).




First, I layed out all the yarn on my kitchen table and just admired it. I left it there for quite awhile and my husband really started getting worried that he may not ever sit down to eat again. Every time I would walk by, I would stop and soak in the colors. After I came to the conclusion that we had to eat once in awhile, I moved all the yarns to the living room. Two overstuffed chairs now became the thrones for my wonderful stash, where they remained for two days. By this time, my family was getting a bit tired of sitting on the floor, so finally, I reluctantly moved them to my baskets.


My first project is a sweet pair of booties made of this wonderful blue/green color, which is labeled Tidepool Heather. I just called them raindrops. I hope you like them...



If you use yarn for your craft, I highly recommend visiting Knit Picks - http://www.knitpicks.com/
