One Down One To Go!

After making my first ever pair of socks, I am hooked!  I love how portable of a project it was, 5 teeny needles, and one teeny ball of yarn.  I could fit this project in a quart sized plastic baggie if I needed too!

If you are looking for a great portable project socks are the way to go! But then, you think just socks? How about a cute pair of booties. That are not only portable but quick! One bootie took about three hours.  Perfect for watching ( listening) to a movie, or a long car ride!

I used this pattern, that I found through Ravelry. Are you all familiar with Ravelry?  At last weekends Craft Fair ( more on that later this week) I got talking to a couple people who Knit and Crochet, but didn't know about Ravelry!  I was so excited to tell them about it, because it is such a great resource!

That's the yarn I am using, The blue variegated is from the Dollar Store! Can you believe it! It's Sock yarn, and no name brand but too cute to pass up!  And the light blue is a Bernat baby Yarn, and I am just pull from both balls at once.

Anyone working on some Knit projects for the holidays? If so, leave a comment I would love to see what your working on, and get some ideas. 


  1. So cute! I haven't been brave enough to try my hand at knitting socks yet. Maybe I'll start with baby size too! Ravelry is awesome! I've found soo many great patterns there, and most of them free! I'm visiting with TRH, hope you visit me too!

  2. Those are sweet! I like the doubled up yarn. I'm also a Ravelry fan! In fact, this is the project I have on the go right now, hopefully a Christmas gift for my SIL:

  3. Just popped in from Tea Rose Home to check out those cute bootees. Lovely!

  4. These would make a sweet gift peeking out from the stocking Christmas morning. Thanks for stopping by and for linking up at Ain't She Crazy!

  5. Ohhhhh they are adorable!!!
