Dial B for Booty
I went to the "other LYS" today (I'm pleased to say they were very nice) and bought a beautiful skein of cashmere yarn for a pair of booties I've been meaning to make for a friend's new baby. Of course, I wasn't going to risk a $25 skein of cashmere yarn on something I'd never made regardless of its ease, I had to test the little bootie pattern with some crap from the stash. After all, as Yarn Harlot's book diagnosed, I'm a Scientific Knitter. I liked it so much I gave it a little bow with a length of Tiffany ribbon. I think it's really sweet but alas, it will have no pair, not while there's cashmere in the house!
