So I’ve wanted to make Saartje’s booties (pdf) for awhile, but in my head they were for girls. The cross over strap thingy made me think it was a girl thing. But everyone on Ravelry and even my husband said “no way!” So now I’m going to make 4 pairs for friends. Didn’t I tell you guys to stop having babies??? I guess you didn’t listen. That’s ok, they are waaaay cute! Weaving in the ends is a bitch though. I hate having ends stick out. How do you guys deal with this? In the pictures, I don’t see anyone else have ends, maybe it’s just hidden. I’m getting better at seaming though, so that’s good news!
Destash is going well, thanks to all who participated. I have to take photos of more yarn and put them up.
And now, a quote from my hilarious husband. I asked him to get a 10 lb. bag of rice, but instead he got a 10 KILO bag. And then I found that he wrote this in his blog: “Today I walked across town with a 10 kilogram (20 pounds?) bag of rice on my head. It was so much easier to carry that way! I don’t think there is anything else to say.” No wonder the kids have been saying “daddy rice head”. I just thought they meant he likes rice.

Hahahaha, he walked across town with a 10 kg bag of rice over his head?! Sounds almost as though he were in Thailand. :-p
BTW, do you think recording on Friday night at Lanaiolo would work?

Pounds and kilograms, centimeters and inches… easy to confuse:)
I escaped weaving in the ends by using the end bits for seaming. Made finishing so much easier!

Ooh, super cute booties! Someone on Rav converted them to a knitting in the round pattern – maybe that would help with the seaming. But it’s too mind-boggling for me to try just yet. Ha! At least seaming baby booties isn’t as rough as an entire sweater.
I think I had a dream about your destash. How terrible is that? You know I’m a slug when it comes to knitting socks, and I don’t need any more yarn. But I’ll send you some handspun any time. Seriously, look around and see if there’s some fiber online that you like. I’d be happy to spin it for you.
