Drive By Giving
Someone at the bakery is expecting a baby.
We don't know her very well, but we like her (she's always pleasant when we see her and she knows the stuff we like and is quick with conversation), so I decided to Pull an Alison as it has come to be known in knitting/blogging circles (though truth be told, I have been doing this a good long time).
This will be my first non-charity "Stranger Gift" in a while, though.
I just hope she's working today!
Particulars: Pattern is on p. 103 of The Opinionated Knitter, and is EZ's response to requests for booties to match the Baby Surprise Sweater. The yarn is Red Heart Soft Baby in the Laddie colorway. (I got it at Smiley's.) I suspect I'll be making a lot of these sweet little feet warmers!
I have a new Prince Skin on the needles, but there's not so much to see just yet.

Cool. And the anticipation, and then the reality, of seeing the look on the recipient's face... Have fun!Post a Comment
