In an unusal burst of coordination, not only did I finish these booties for our friends' new baby, but we bought a card and got the whole thing it the mail. Amazing.
And aren't they cute? (What you can't see is how tiny they are! But stretchy, and really--it's not like the baby will have to go bootie-less if these only fit for 15 seconds.)
They're Saartje's bootees, knit on 2.5 mm needles with scraps of Lola.
In other news, I'm going to meet up with a friend of mine from college (who also knits, just not obsessively... yet!) to go to the Fiber Twist this Saturday. Maybe this time (if we make it to the farms, I mean), I'll manage to take pictures of some fiber critters?
Although on the other hand, why start being a diligent photographer now? Maybe I could just substitute critter pictures from the Peru trip?
Rebecca with Llamas in Machu Picchu
Don't you think? This could be Deerfield, right? A llama is a llama, New England is known for its stone walls, and I'm likely to be wearing the same coat, if it's rainy on Saturday. No one will ever know the difference.
(There's a small herd of llamas living in Machu Picchu, looking picturesque and keeping the grass short... )
