Can't win every time:
Although the photo doesn't illustrate my failure well, the idea (like the photo--symbolic!) failed miserably.
Excellent. I know that booties are a great way to use up tidbits of sock yarn, and I especially like the slipper-type design of the Magic Booties. Add a strap and cute button across the top, and you've got some serious Mary Jane action.
Using the idea behind the Newborn Crawling Booties, my plan is to come up with a version that uses worsted weight yarn (I could adjust for gauge, but I think that it'll be easier to simply design a new pattern.)
Whee! Bootie fun! (Just imagine the google hits....)
