It’s time to put on your seat belt for some CUTE!!!!Oh, yeah, Hoover is just so stinkin’ cute you could just squeeze him, but we’re not talking about puppies who take naps with their cute heads on pillows….


These are my first ever baby booties that I really like, made for a friend who had a baby girl. They are going to have to be “winter” shoes because of their rather large size (I think my needles were size 5) but cute is cute, so I hope in time she will enjoy them! I made little knitted balls instead of buttons since the baby will be older when she wears these and might have the dexterity to pull at a button.

The pattern was free (I’m all about FREE) and you can find it here Also visit Saartje’s blog and see her beautiful creations from the Netherlands. Thanks, Saartje, for a very fun pattern… and easy too!

I discovered Spud & Chloe through Susan B. Anderson’s newsletter. Anderson designs patterns for the new yarn line Spud & Chloe. Check it out the free patterns (Ribbit is one!) here.

This little cutie is called Ribbit, a knitted frog pattern that opts to use a tennis ball instead of stuffing! I’m going to start on this tonight and make it for grandson Asher. He is almost 6 months old now and will probably get a giggle or two out of a bouncing frog!

I found the bamboo needles on eBay, a full set in all sizes for $12. I’m “okay” with them, but would like to have some nicer ones some day.

This yarn is just dreamy. My friend Heather ordered mine with hers and it came in time for our knit group meeting last Saturday. What fun it was to see her after several weeks of summer travel, complete with Ribbit’s yarn!

So I’m off to my recliner to try and get over a bug I’ve been fighting, and all the while working on a little frog friend. I’ll let you know how it goes!
