Instant Booties – Just Add a Sitcom

Booties mosaic
Yesterday I finished a baby kimono I’d been working on. But it was one of those evenings, when you get several sitcoms one after another. What was I left to do? Cast on for another project, of course! Technically speaking, I’ve been knitting these booties during two days, but in reality, you can finish them in just two episodes of some sitcom. And this including all the finishing.
I modified the pattern slightly: instead of using just a thread to tie them, I put a row of double crochet around the opening and made a single crochet chain. An i-cord would have been even better… Next time I have to try it!
The result: super cute and super easy booties, prior to such an amount of adjustments and modifications, that sky is the limit. Really.
Pattern: Lionbrand Baby Simple Garter Stitch Booties
Yarn: Regia Cotton, Surf Color
Amount: 25 gram(?)
Mommy’s pleasure seeing her baby in these booties: immeasurable
Baby’s opinion on booties: Can’t be expressed yet

Now that it’s getting warmer, I see more often dogs tied outside the shops, expecting their owners. Somehow it’s always painful for me to witness, as if these dogs have been abandoned. In a way, at least in their doggy brains, they have been – animals don’t have a notion of future as we do, and they don’t really grasp the idea of “Ill be back soon”. What is soon for them? As minutes, hours, or perhaps years for us?
This dog has been waiting for the owner to come back, and served me a great model – I just bought my new Nikon then and wanted to try it out downtown. This dog was such a personalization of waiting! I think he was bored, too… The pictures were later edited with Picasa, to accentuate certain aspects of the photos.
