Faeries wear boots

For some strange reason, I was thinking the baby shower I was fervently knitting for, was Sunday... turns out it was today. Fortunately, I realized it yesterday, but it meant feverishly working on the second Elvish bootie.

I finished it up this morning - 15 minutes beforeI had to leave for the shower.
This was a fun little pattern and the end result is pretty darn adorable.

I had some trouble with the toes on these, and had to rip back several time - but it was my fault, not the pattern's.
I used some left over House Cat for them. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of Gavin wearing them - the little tyke slept through most of the shower, and I didn't want to disturb him.But his Mom thought they were pretty darn cute.
And she's promised to send a few modeled shots.  I had planned on making at least one pair of baby socks for Gavin as well, so before I left I packed up a scrap ball and my needles. By then end of the shower, there was a little itty, bitty pair done (no pics... ooops).

And now I've got the rest of the weekend to knit for myself - and no deadlines!

Nothing better than no-deadline knitting. ENJOY!

Love the new mom's face. I think she liked the elfish booties!

They're so cute! Too bad the little darling was sleeping, although I don't suppose his Mom thought so :) There's a little parcel in the post to you for Gavin as well.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. I finished up most of my chores yesterday so now I have two free days to do whatever I like. I'm hoping the weather stays nice for some outdoor activities :)
