And matching booties

I cobbled together the Lion Brand toddler socks pattern (which uses a short-row heel) with Grandmother Owl’s Really Good Booties, and then tacked on my own pattern for a leaf. The heel didn’t come out quite right (I also used various instructions for short rows, none of which I completely understood), so there are holes. But at least they all line up, which is pretty much the definition of a pattern. I do love this leaf. I also love the pointy little toes, achieved by simply stopping at 8 stitches and gathering the stitches together like a mitten, instead of Kitchener-stitching like socks.

All in all, I am happy.
