I'm taking my time with choosing my next outfit, I'm just finishing off the last lovely smockdress, then going to draw the giveaway on Thursday.
So totally chilling, making foodz and drinking wine, but here's something I've been doing while I'm hanging on the couch:
Can you tell what they are? I am NOT an experienced knitter at all, and have only just started working out the lingo of knitting (Oh, so there are abbreviations used, not a different language like pig latin! RIIIIGHT) so I'm pretty happy I followed the pattern for these little things.
The greeny one is a bootie, started up the top ankle bit (I imagine) and then knitted down, making a heel and then making a toe. Now, the pattern told me to break the thread. BREAK it! I freaked out. What if I had stuffed it? I decided to take the risk and soldier on. But I just can't work out how it sews together. It LOOKS WEIRD!
The second one, is also a bootie, but a red orangey bootie, and same again, I tried a different pattern (this one omitted the heel and the breaking of the thread) but it still looks SILLY and I can't work out how to sew it up. WEIRD.
Also check out Weirdo Doggie Darling who has a couple of new toys! Totally recommend them for Staffies and chewy dogs:
I think they're called 'Busy Buddies' and from the Premier brand (from the States I think), I got them from Ozpets.com.au or whatever.
