I haven't had much time (or energy) for knitting this week...which is funny, because it's always during weeks like this that I need the soothing rhythms of knit and purl the most.
That's when an old familiar pattern comes in handy – preferably for something teeny-tiny, so that you can feel like you're making progress. Enter the Cutest Booties.
Tiny socks for a tiny baby. 32 stitches, KPPPM, 2.75 mm needles; a pair finished in a week, even with spending less than half an hour a day with needles in my hands.
Crochet ties and teeny-tiny pom poms (thanks to this gadget – an excellent investment of $7) finish things off. It doesn't get much cuter than this!
This week I'll be tackling the macro version – another gift, but this time for a grown-up friend – big yarn, big needles...but just as satisfying.
Oh, and speaking of satisfying, look what I saw when I was out for a walk this morning. Snowdrops!
Spring is coming....
