I have been "working" on making baby Ivy some pink "Uggs" for a while now to match her pink baby sweater!. I finished the first bootie a long time ago... and waited and waited and waited to get the motivation to knit the second. If you're a knitter, you might agree with me -- making the second sock, bootie, mitten, etc... is just the worst! I think it's because I've already had the satisfaction of finishing the first one and making the second one is just anti-climatic. While Jessica was here this past weekend, I roped her into knitting a "few rows" for me. One thing lead to the next and she finished the second half of bootie #2! Aren't they so cute?!!
Today, my Florida BFF Kayla and I had a fun afternoon working on projects and shopping for craft supplies. Kayla is an amazing photographer and she showed me a few no-flash photography tricks and gave me a quick PhotoShop lesson. Look at the photos below-- the one on the left is the original and the right is the photoshopped version. Kayla worked her magic to brighten up the image, create a soft and warm glow, and even took out the orange lighter in the left corner!scoot over to Hipknitized to print out the free pattern!
