And down she goes....

The last few days have been just go-go-go here at Chez Wandering Cat. Work's been busy, I've been busy around the house, and there's a baby shower to knit for this weekend.

I was so proud of myself when I got the front gardens completed last night. All that's left is the veggie garden, which I planned to tackle tonight. That was until this morning...

There I was, walking across the street to my car, enjoying the sun on my face, and the birdsong in the air... thinking about the workday ahead of me....

... when my shoe suddenly decided to go one way, but my foot decided to disagree and go the other way.
Down I went like soft wood timber! I have a huge gash on my knee and road rash all up my leg - there won't be any activities that involve kneeling anytime soon... the veggies may be planted in pots this year.

But for now, I've got my feet up, a nice alcoholic drink at my side (it's medicinal!) and I'm working on baby booties!

Honestly, I'm a little unsure of this pattern. I had to rip the two out three times before I got it right. And I think it's pretty wide for a baby foot (and I even went down a needle size). But, I'm going to do the second one anyway and see if it fits. I'm not a baby connoisseur... so maybe it will be okay.

Oh no....ouch, that had to hurt. You have the right idea-knitting and booze cures everything.

The sock is very cute. When I saw it on Ravarly I wanted to get the pattern right away. Now I'll wait till you have done the second one, and hear what you've to say about the fit.

Ouch! Although, it's a bit suspicious this "accident" being as it's the Friday before a long weekend and the weather is awesome. Rest and elevate that foot and feel better!

Owwwweee. Hope everything heals up quickly.

In the meantime .....enjoy the "downtime" knitting.

Don't misjudge the width. Baby feet can be kind of on the chunky side. You probably have it just right.
