A student in Chris' class loves to knit and crochet. She recently offered to make Sesame a hat, but I think her pattern is for preemies, so we thought maybe not a good idea.
This morning Chris remember a gift the student had sent home for us, and pulled out these adorable crocheted his and hers booties she made for us.
This evening we got home from a nice dinner with Jed and Tracy, who were in town visiting for the day, and I found a package in the mail from Juliana. A gift from her recent trip to Argentina! I pulled out the most ridiculously cute little crocheted sandal booties.
We couldn't believe it. All in one day our whole family was outfitted with hand crocheted footwear!!
While I'm here, I also want to advertise some of the delicious Amish friendship bread I made today, and to say that I have starters to make more. If anyone is interested in the starter and the recipe, please let me know. I hate to pass it on like a chain letter to unsuspecting non-bakers, so I'm trying to find someone who wants it :)
It's really more like cake, since it has quite a bit of sugar. The blueberries along with the cinnamon make it pretty exciting too.
Here are the starters that I have, just waiting...
And this is what the final product looks like in muffin form:
