Nothin' makes you go "Awwww" like itty bitty booties.
The pattern: Saartje's Booties. Which is a free pattern, and you should go knit a pair, or two or three.
The yarn: Tristan, by Louet. Which is linen plyed with merino...quite lovely. I knit Manimal a hat out of it, and the rest of the skein has been languishing in the big blue yarn tub. I probably have enough left over for another pair of emergency booties.
And since this was an emergency project I don't feel that I have violated any "suggestions" or solemn vows or whatever...but here's a question. If you finish a project that you never started, does it count toward finish-2-start-1? And if you finish a pair of somethings, isn't that really finishing two individual somethings, and doesn't that mean that I now get to cast something on? And further more. I frogged a project while I was sorting yarn, so that is in a way finishing something (as in, "you're finished" said the hero to the villain), is it not?
By my count I am one ahead in the finishing department.
Whoo hoo! See ya at the yarn store!
Ragnar...the important thing is that I convince myself that it's true.
