Bootees, Blue Jay, and Spock

Spock playing futuristic chess.

I just keep cranking out those bootees. Here's the next pair all done.

The pattern is Free Seamless Baby Bootees by Megan Mills. The yarn is an unknown old acrylic baby pompador in white with a silver grey thread. I used size 3 needles. I like the results much better than the 2's.

I found these bootees while digging around in boxes.

I made them a few years ago, models for the shop. The pattern is in the book 50 Baby Bootees to Knit by Zoe Mellor. I think I used Patons Look at Me yarn, if I remember correctly.

And I've started another pair.

Still the Free Seamless Baby Bootees by Megan Mills with left over Opal sock yarn from the Petticoat colorway 1292. I'm having so much fun with this pattern I don't want to do anything else. Heh heh.

Had an unusual visitor to the Parkarosa Bird Buffet yesterday. This Stellar's Jay spent the whole day eating sunflower seeds.

He has a little bit of white on top his head.

That little feeder was full to the brim with seeds before he started.

Sweet Hubby's cough is almost gone. Hurray! But now I've started coughing. Boo! Hopefully it won't get as bad as his did. I'm taking steps to help it go away. Oddly, Morgan does not seem to be bothered by my coughing like he is Dougs. Very strange, but welcome. It would drive me crazy if he ran every time I coughed. It was bad enough having that happen to Doug. Anyway, things are getting much more peaceful amongst the fur kids. As I write this, all 4 of them are sprawled around the living room snoozing away.

This afternoon is the Rathdrum Knit Along meeting. I missed the last one because I had to take Morgan to see the eye doctor. I'm anxious to catch up on what everyone else is knitting.

I haven't done any beading the past few days. Instead, I've been buying beads-Sarah and I went to the Bead Stampede in Spokane last Sunday afternoon. I found all the things on my list, and then some. There weren't as many vendors as before, but who was there had some gorgeous stuff. I spent way too much money.

I've also been looking for beads. Somewhere in this house is a small green bag full of 90 bucks worth of beads I bought a few weeks ago to make a Christmas ornament cover. I've unpacked and put away all my beading stuff now and it's no where to be found. I must have put it somewhere safe where it won't get lost. Oh yeah! It's safe! I can't even find it it's so safe.

I hate it when that happens.

I've also updated my beading class schedule page. I will be teaching two bead ornament cover classes in November. I don't know yet what I'm doing for knitting classes yet. I'll find out later this week and update that page accordingly.

Have a great day.
