Look what happens when your dog gets ahold of your tatting project. I had just finished the second round on the second bootee and put it down for the night. The next morning while I was getting ready for work Sadie came in with it dripping from her mouth. To late to rescue this bootee! She is so curious you really have to put things up where she can't reach them.
I did get right on the the second one though and finished them up. They are going to my nephew and his wife. They are expecting a baby boy in December. Don't you think this was a great color combination for a little boy? Now I am working on green ones for my sister's new granddaughter due in October. I will have still
have three more pairs to make before the end of the year. Two more green and one is going to be mocha and cream.
I am using a pattern by Mrs. C.B Platt and size 20 Lizbeth thread in color 113 Jewels.
It is so hot out doors that I should be able to get a lot done on e the new bootee today. I spent most of yesterday outdoors working in the yard and garden. I almost have enough cucumbers to make a batch of bread and butter pickles. Just need to get a few more ingredients and I can start the process.
