It is so flippin' hot in New York at the moment that I want to shave my head.
As the non-so-subtle smell of eight million sweaty bodies settles over the five boroughs, I can confidently say that my urge to knit has melted away as fast as that Popsicle you left lying in the sun. Wool? Not in this weather.
Cotton, perhaps, would be okay. I've hinted about baby booties in other posts. Here you go:
Some of you might recognize the pattern as the Bee Shoes from 50 Baby Booties to Knit. The colors, of course, are my interpretation of the bee based on some leftover Sugar 'n Cream and some green Reynolds yarns I had stewing in the stash. These will be for friends whose twins arrived a wee early. About eight weeks early, to be exact. All is well with everyone, so it's time to get knittin'.
As much as I like these patterns, I don't like the eleventymillion ends you need to weave in at the end. All these ends for Baby Booties? Hmm, I'm not so sure.
I am sure, however, that the results are too cute to think about the ends once the bootie is done. Eeep!
