No More Bootie Attempts!

I finally tackled the difficulty of knitting socks! I made these soft knitted booties for my sister Eva as a Christmas gift in '09. Wow, the pattern was quite intense as it is filled with cable stitches, but I think it was well worth it since Eva loves to lounge around in them over in France. La dee da!!
I can't wait to find more patterns I'm interested in. Hopefully I'll be able to figure out how to decipher the hieroglyphics that come along with knitting projects. It's always a challenge! My mom bought me some delicious silk/bamboo blended yarn recently, which I might try for socks. I think that would be too luxurious! That reminds me ... I need to get knitting! Perfect time to do so, with the recent heavy snowfall - I might need to borrow Eva's booties!
