My niece came into the world safely. She is beautiful and perfect and even though I haven’t met her yet, due to the thousands of miles between us, I’m in love. She is a very special little girl with a big purpose in life. I can already see that.
She was born yesterday morning and I spent most of the day alternating between crying with joy, and then just crying because I was so heartbroken I couldn’t be there. I'm a bit of a crier. I put her precious picture up on the laptop and sat and made these.
I’ve been on a bit of a crochet kick lately and I think it is because my sewing room is so messy. I can’t work in that mess, yet can’t bring myself to clean it up. It’s so much easier to just shut the door.
Thank god for sewing though, it has brought me much sanity in the past several months. I thought about doing a bit of a recap of what has come off my machine since summer. In the end the list was too long and not terribly interesting. An assembly line of pajamas (a dozen or so pairs), T shirts, a couple of knit dresses, doll clothes…everything already weeks into rotation.
Back to the little knit baby galoshes…
This pattern has a really neat way of doing the sole so that the boots stand up on their own very easily. I really enjoyed making these.
Look how small! I need to get these in the mail today so they fit for at least half a day.
Pattern can be found HERE. This pattern maker has no idea who I am, but a cute and well written pattern is worth sharing.
Have a happy Monday! :)
