Layette Set #33

Geez, I had a hard time getting this post done. Everything was working so slow on the internet. Sweet Hubby suggested rebooting the modem when he got home from school. It fixed the problem. I wish I'd thought of that sooner. Would have decreased the frustration.

Layette set #33 is done.

Comments: This is the last piece of this fleece fabric. Yay! I was getting tired of knitting with brown.



I was going to go all fancy on the edging cuz I found a cute one with polka dots, but realized I would be happier with a little bit plainer, and perhaps more masculine edging. So it's just a couple rounds of single crochet.

Since this is also Wednesday, here are the current WIPs that are getting my attention.

I've made a 34th set and am working on the booties for it now in glorious pink. A nice change from brown.



I'm making progress on the first of the pair of socks for Frank.



I am working on the heel flap. The pattern has vertical stripes here, but making them is incredibly fiddly so I decided to just make a plain one. Horizontal stripes would be cool though. Hmmm.....

Summer is gone. It's autumn in North Idaho. The leaves are changing color, and the temps have cooled down considerably. I feel like I've been cheated of the best parts of summer because it was so unbearably hot the whole time, and from the last week in July until the end of August I couldn't go outside and enjoy my deck because of the smoke from the wild fires. Phooey. Winter is on its way.

Live long and prosper. \\//
