We went to Tallahassee Saturday evening to celebrate our friend Andre's birthday. We all stayed at his parents house and had a good time as usual. I love his parents, they rock! And of course we ate tons of yummy food. I didn't take any pictures because I was busy knitting away trying to finish his birthday gift before he opened presents that night. Andre and Stephanie just found out they are having a baby. We actually found out last Thursday but he and Stephanie waited to tell his parents in person. There are some booties that some ladies in my stitch 'n' bitch group have been knitting. These things are so cute it's just about ridiculous. So of course, I had to knit up a pair for the father-to-be. I finished one in the car on the way to Tallahassee and finished the other one while we were there. People kept asking me what I was knitting and I wouldn't tell anyone because I didn't want to spoil the surprise. Awesome thing I discovered lately ... I can knit in the car! I get (and always have gotten) very car sick if I try to do anything except for look straight ahead while riding in a car. Reading is completely out of the question as is looking at a map. I've always been this way. Why is it that I can knit in the car without getting sick? Interesting. When I was younger I felt sick just riding in the back seat because I couldn't see straight ahead of me. Anyway, I digress. Now for the cuteness ...

And yes, they are slightly different. The yarn I used has three colors plied together that change one at a time. Makes a really cool fabric. I know this would bother some people but I knew Andre and Stephanie would like it. The booties were definitely a big hit! There will be a matching hat added to the set within the next nine months that will really tie it all together. Kinda like a rug has a way of tying the room together ... any Big Lebowski fans out there? Hee hee.
