High-top booties

This pair of booties I started towards the end of my first trimester. While knitting the first bootie I had a little scare with the pregnancy and got superstitious and stopped, then lost my knitting momentum for a few months. These past few weeks I've been trying to make up for lost time. I finally finished the booties, knitted several little hats (not all for my baby), and there are a couple of baby sweaters in the works.

Not sure what to say about these booties. They came out mismatched (likely due to the time that elapsed between bootie #1 and bootie #2) and the pattern may be a little wonky on the eyelet round (it could just be me, though the same thing happened for both booties). But they're done, and time will tell if they are wearable by an actual baby.

John bought us a digital SLR on our one-year wedding anniversary, and this is the first picture I'll be posting that was taken with that camera (photo credit: John).

Nice hats, darling baby!

"they make it difficult to do business with them."

We don't do wholesale anymore for a few reasons but mostly because we like our retail customers way better-they pay their bills!
We eliminated wholesale because of the shops, who shall remain nameless,who don't pay their bills and because it was way too much work for too little $. Eliminating wholesale enabled us to continue to keep our prices reasonable, we absorbed the 20 to 50% price increases in materials.
New website with shop capabilities is almost ready- just needs to be populated before you can purchase online. Check it out next week.
