The Bad Karma Baby Bootee Debacle

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]I finally finished two matching bootees on the 6th try! The short version is that I was supposed to go to a baby shower last Saturday, but had plans with my stitch group and didn’t want to go. I decided to make the bootees to absolve my guilt at not attending the actual shower! :rollseyes: [/SIZE][/FONT]

[FONT=Times New Roman][SIZE=3]Needless to say, what I thought would be a quick little project I could whip up from existing stash yarn turned into 4 trips to the store for buttons/ribbon/yarn. I finally went with Saartje’s adorable pattern and I will definitely make those again ([I]well, in a few months, when I can stand to think about bootees again[/I]!) :lol: The mom-to-be decorated her nursery in a bumblebee theme, hence the color of the bootees![/SIZE][/FONT]
