Love and Mistakes

I love my sockret pal (or as I call her my sockret mum)

when the box was opened screams of oh my god were heard around the house, causing both the dog and sis to come running to see what was wrong- or in this case right!!

my sis - being a non-knitting muggle didn't understand why a skein of CTH is cause for jumping around the house nor why I immediately sat down (still petting the CTH) to read the Knit Fix book, claiming it my new Bible.

do you want to see:

and a porny pic of the CTH (Life's a Beach) colourway- very appropriate!

Sockret Mum you are the best, absolutely amazing- I had to wrestle my sis not to take the body lotion ( pink grapefruit) and am about to take a crochet class so wow for the entire package. Did I mention I want to be adopted!! :) LOL

I could fill up the page with thankyou's and it would still not be enough. But thank you again.

BTW: I have a problem. (Yes, yes besides the obvious :) LOL )
I am making the Debbie Bliss garter stitch bootees from Quick Baby Knits and for the life of me cannot figure out how to do the back seam properly - as there are 6 stitches on the sole to incorporate into the seam. The shoe on the left is ready for seaming, the one on the right- finished. But see how it puckers- I am not very fond of that but have no idea how to fix it. Any ideas?

And just because- the front, complete with the background CTH- I can't stop looking at it.

Ooh, the Life's a Beach is indeed yummy! She totally hooked you up!

As far as the bootees, could it be done as two seams? first down the back, and then a separate one across the heel, sort of like an upside-down "T"? That might eliminate the puckering.

Adorable bootees! No suggestions, but I think they're cute.

I have the same color CTH sock yarn. For some reason, I've been obsessed with greens and yellows of late. Go figure.
