Crochet Time...

 Most recently I tried out a new crochet pattern for baby booties.  I had never attempted making baby booties before, mostly because I had never come across a pattern I liked.  All the patterns seemed so outdated and "cutsie".  I wanted to work on something a little more modern and unisex.  I finally came across this pattern for double-straped baby booties and knew I found what I was looking for.

They really didn't take that long to make, and I enjoyed the relaxation of time spent crocheting.  When it was all said and done though, I knew I just had to get them out of my home.  The last thing this single girl needs to see are these absolutely adorable baby booties, just makes you want to have a baby to put them on.

I ended up taking the baby booties with me to the Sustainable Food, Farming and Faith conference this past weekend in Pennsylvania.  The conference was offering a barter fair as part of the event and I ended up bartering these booties for some delicious varieties of potatoes.
