I had a nice time crocheting the kimono baby shoes. Not hard at all if you just follow the pattern be mindful of blo and flo, you will be fine. I made two left shoes, I need to make two right ones to match those. lol I know was moving fast and not paying an attention to that little detail. Honestly no one can tell unless you say something. I made these for a little guy, now I need to figure out a fastener that would be suitable. Once you make one you will surely want to make another. Something quick to make for a baby shower gift. My daughter wants some so, I need to try to make one for an adult or ask the designer.
Pattern called Wooly Bridges from Too Hook.
Very easy to crochet. I have made several of these, thought I would share with my fellow crafters. They will go good with lots of things I suppose. I really enjoyed crocheting these. You can whip one out in maybe 1-3 hours.
These are courtside booties by Donna Childs.
Completed: March 25, 2009
Used Bernat Baby Softee yarn
This was a very quick crochet project. I had some problems putting it together, but I conquered as you can see. I surely will make more of these. I’m sure on the next pair I will make some changes. I really enjoyed this project.
These are Emily's Socks from the Two at a time book by Melissa Morgan-Oakes.
Finished: April 5 2009
I did not like the k3tog stitch at all. I did however get through a few rows, then I just wanted to do some mindless knitting. I didn’t have a problem with knitting socks 2-at-a-time. The book is very good, I will surely make another pair of socks from it.
These are Mother May I socks designed by Phyll Lagerman. One of my favorite sock designers. You will see more of her socks here in the near future.
Complete date: March 19, 2009
I had a good time knitting these socks. It was the kind of project you wanted to knit more and more to see what it was going to look like. I enjoyed knitting with Bernat Sox yarn, it is very stretchy would be great for wide feet or for a diabetic. I completed the socks in a weeks time. I truly enjoyed the pattern. Look forward to knitting more. I knit these socks 2 at a time on 2 circulars (US2).

I finally finish the Entrelac Socks. I would have finished much sooner, I stopped to make several baby shower items for several baby showers. Now I’m so tired of entrelac but I’m sure in the future I will do it again. Once I got the hang of which way to go, I was ok. Now when I stopped I forgot how to knit entrelac, that set me back Completion date: March 22, 2009
