Instant Gratification

I dig them! (And, yes, that is a basket full of laundry waiting to be put away.) I didn't, however, really dig the pattern. There are several things I would like to change about them. I think for the next pair (of course there will be a next pair) I'm just gonna scrap the pattern and do my own. Like, why in the world was the top part not crocheted in the round? Silly, needless seaming. And I was not impressed with how the heel came together. I'm thinking of making a pair for the mother inlaw for Mother's day and my little sister has requested a pair next week's payment. But, this is what I love about crochet, instant gratification. I'll have time to whip up several pairs before Mother's day, and my mom was just here, saw mine and said "oh, I'd wear those...if I had a pair"..hint, hint.

I have convinced Tait to let us keep one of the puppies. So sweet! We haven't named her yet, but Kaiya wants to call her Dora. We'll see.

Happy Thursday!

Awww, I'm glad you get to keep a puppy! And I love making something with a new pattern and going, "Yanno... I could make these better if I...." That's how my finger puppets were born :-D

(But I hate it when Larry forgets to sign out of his Google accounts and I end up posting as him.)
