I had hoped to be able to post some modeled photos of my finished Mommy Snug this evening, but, unfortunately, it's still a bit damp and probably needs another day on the drying rack. Would you settle for a photo of some uber-cute baby booties instead?
These were done a few weeks ago, but I didn't get around to sewing on the buttons until the other night, when I pulled out my button collection and sewing box for the sweater. These, of course, are the famous Saartje's Bootees (pdf link) that I think everyone's made at least once by now. I used some of my rainbow handspun and size 2 (2.75 mm) needles and knit the larger size. They came out a little on the big side and the wool was a little scratchy, so after they were sewn up, I fulled them a bit by hand. They're now little bit smaller, much fuzzier and softer, and have a nice bootee shape to them.
The Mister and I have another road trip this weekend (this time to D.C. for a bridal shower), and my brother's scarf will be making the trip with me. Expect to see a finished -- and dry! -- sweater when we get back!
