Indeed it’s summer time. The sun beats down on our heads with its fierce heat, the clouds come and go, bringing fat droplets of rain that plummet against the ground soo quickly you can almost hear them groan with pain, and us Crocheters get to spend some time in our wonderfully cold homes creating fall apparel for babies, children, men, and women. But, mainly babies for me! I’m talking about Baby Booties. They’re beyond adorable, keep your baby’s feet nice and toasty warm, and can be color coordinated with baby’s wardrobe! Not to mention that they’re really inexpensive to make. Ta-dah! Now THAT’S a win-win situation.
Here’s the story behind my Baby Booty Fashion Chic obsession:
I was out shopping at a big box store one day and came across some tiny crochet books in the yarn aisle. So, I opened one up, and to my surprise, the book was not only filled with cute babies with crochet booties on, but the patterns were EXTREMELY EASY to follow. We’re talking Beginner to Beginner+ status here. The line of books tells you what types/brands of yarns to purchase right there in the store. No need to go to the specialty craft stores. NICE!
Anyhoo, I made the purchase after some hesitation (seriously, I already have TONS of crochet pattern books), and started making the oh-s0o-adorable baby booties faster than you can say, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!” Pictures of my finished baby booties and the names of the books are soon to follow, so stay tuned!
