Roughly three years ago I came across this free "look a like" Ugg bootie pattern on Ravelry and I knew I had to make them. Many of my friend's children were now having children of their own and I knew they would be the perfect gift. I even bought the pink and blue yarn. (Of course what else?) Like most projects, I started with gusto and then eventually put it aside when other more pressing matters came my way. Is it any surprise that I didn't finished them? I doubt it. The precious babies came into the world as expected and none of them were to wear the intended booties. Until now When I heard that a close friend of my daughter was expecting, I knew I had the perfect gift. Again I dug through my stash and unearthed the pattern, needles and yarn that I needed and went to work on the little, bitty booties. I knit 2 pair, 1 blue and 1 pink as the sex of the baby was to be a surprise. We all waited not so patiently until we finally got the news.
Oh, and the pink ones are ready and waiting for the next little baby girl that comes along. How about that; for the first time in my life I'm ready and waiting.
