Tanya, here's the link for the booties. Clicking the link should take you right there. If not, they're Baby Booties by Princess X on Ravelry. Hope your foot is healing and that you'll soon be doing all the things you love!
Araignee, there will be no one here to finish anything I leave behind. It will either go to Goodwill or the dump. I'm working hard to use as many of my things as I can. I pull out my crystal and china, just because. I'm also working to use my stash. My goal is to have nothing on hand but what I'm currently working on. You've all seen the size of my stashes, so I've got a way to go!
I'm working on this sweater for my granddaughter. It's from the Fall 2010 Interweave Knits. I started working on it last fall and am just getting around to finishing it. It's the most challenging thing I've knit so far, I've done lots of my own charts and notes just to keep track of the pattern. The most challenging part has been the construction of the shoulder seams. The pattern is a nice one and I'm surprised more people haven't knit it. The only thing I'm not really loving is the yarn. I'm using Kraemers' Perfection in a worsted weight. I should have given more thought to the yarn. I don't like the hand of it in this pattern. The pattern calls for a worsted merino linen blend, while I'm using acrylic merino blend. DGD has it without sleeves so I can see (pics from DH) how it fits.
My middle sister came over last week. She wanted new covers for her front porch cushions. Her DH got an estimate of $900 to to cover them. She ordered some from Overstock ($300) that she didn't like. Our mother suggested that she buy the fabric and find someone to make them for her. She said if I could help her cut them out; she'd find someone to sew them. I said if you're coming here to cut them you can sew them! My sisters always act as if they've never sewn in their lives! She did a beautiful job, for a fraction of the price (just under $100). Now she wants to do cushions for the sun room and curtains for her living room as well. I think I may have created a monster!
