mark my words




I'm determined to get my craft on after having had a very long hiatus from anything handmade. The time has come where things feel settled enough to afford me the time to work towards a project. So after spotting some very cute knitted baby socks made by Evie of Handmade Romance, I followed her links to find the pattern over at The Purl Bee.

Now, my knitting repertoire is limited consisting of simple scarfs and a few beanies so I'm setting myself a challenge here. With the help of Youtube, I'm going to try to make these booties for Luka. I did attempt to make some socks a couple of weeks ago, without much success but it's warmed me up. So mark my words this project will be attempted. It may not work or maybe it will. I'll show you my progress along the way.

Look at these lovelies too.
