Though I still love the look of these booties too, I decided to give this pattern a try. My concern with last months pair was that they might not stay on the foot well. I'm toying with the idea of giving them an i-cord tie. This new pattern is one my mother has been using and the name caught my attention right away. That, and the cozy little look of them. I knit this pair in just a couple of interrupted hours... easy! They were made using a .50 cent skein of thrifted bulky cotton. They are super soft and squishy.
We finished Uncle Tom's Cabin last week. I'll tell you, the last chapters almost did me in. The girls thought that a toad had taken up residency in their mother. I'm not sure how they even understood what I was reading! Between my croaking and the minute long pauses between sentences while I tried to think about other things so I could make it through... almost impossible.
So, we decided that our next read aloud would be Robin Hood. I've actually never read this myself so I'm looking forward to the adventure. We've read only the first 2 chapters but already the characters are quickly taking shape and we are into the intrigue!
