(Almost...still awaiting blocking and buttons)
Oh man, do I love this color! I can say that completely unabashedly because, while I did dye it myself, I had no clue whatsoever what I was doing.
Oh, and I chose buttons:
I still need to sew them on and then crochet some button loops. I did make buttonholes while I was knitting, but they're too small and too far in and they just look goofy--so I'm going to sew the buttons onto the side that had the holes, and in doing so close up and camoflage the old holes, see? And then crochet little loops to go over them. It's not perfect, but it'll work.
A better solution might have been to make the buttonholes right the first time around, but what can you do.
One bootie, kind of finished but awaiting buttons, blocking, and sewing up:
Super cute, and super easy and super fast--maybe an hour and a half for this bootie last night? And so CUTE! I can't get over how little it is. I did modify the pattern a little, unsurprisingly--details later.
And big-girl booties (not really): flats for me.
Purple purple purple.
