You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

UGG....


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.   
"IT'S A BOY "
The blue Uggs were promptly shipped out to California. 


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.

You can find this delightful  free pattern  at Madmonkeyknits . She has many free patterns listed on her webpage. 


PEACE AND LOVE

They're lovely booties - I think they look nicer than the adult versions they're modelled on. I'm not keen on stereotyping boys and girls so I'd only have had to knit one pair!
