Booties and a Block

Even though the calendar says "March," we decided on a recent walk that it seems more like a late October with long days. With that in mind, I find stitching on a Christmas-themed BOM fits right in! I finished the first of
Gail Pan's designs. They are fun to do and all one size, so I shouldn't have to fight with them later to put together, or at least I sure hope not.

Just last night I sewed the ends in on these little booties, a fun project called Magic Slippers that I found on the SockPixie site. They were designed to use up what she calls "walnuts" left from making socks. I, however, used just a tiny bit of yarn left from making that recent baby sweater. Now I want to figure out a way to make them bigger.......
