I'm in a rut...a knitting rut that is. I've been casting on and knitting like crazy, but I don't have anything to show for it yet.
I have a new grandson that will 3 weeks old this coming Sunday and I did knit a little blue hat for him and I'd like to knit a sweater for him, too. I just haven't found the right pattern and the right yarn. And, my daughter has informed me that my granddaughter is in need of a new sweater from her Nana as well.
In the mean time, I've been looking through patterns and more patterns. My friend, Joan, of Knitting By The Ocean sent me a link to the cutest little pattern for baby boy booties. Combat Booties, but they kind of remind me the work boots that my SIL sometimes wears.

I don't mean to be critical, but I found this pattern a little bit confusing. I certainly wouldn't have any idea how to begin to design or write my own knitting pattern. I've CO for these booties 3 times, and I think that I finally got it. I have one bootie almost done and I'm going to CO for the second bootie right away before I forget how I did it.
Knitting these booties has reminded me how much I used to enjoy knitting socks and I haven't knitted any for a long time now. So...I went looking at patterns.
Here's some patterns on my future to-do list:
Cats Sweet Tomato Heel
Toe-Up “Faux Heel Flap” Socks for Magic Loop ~ Fingering Weight Yarn ~
I also have a bridal shower coming up and I want to knit this for the future bride.
Bridal Shower Lace Kitchen Hanging Hand Towel
Until later......Happy Knitting!
