Baby Booties

Well, I was stuck at home for a couple of weeks after my tonsillectomy. (Not a fun thing at 43!) I didn't want a big project to do, but I found out a my son grew up with is having a baby boy! Now you would think having 4 boys of my own I would groan at the thought of making something blue. No sir, it brought back a whirlwind of pleasant memories that I hope she will have too! I didn't want something big, just a little something to get my mind off myself while I recovered. A few weeks earlier I found a copy of the only crochet book I owned when I first learned to crochet. I remember trying the patterns, but most of them wouldn't come out right. It was nice to see I have learned something in all these years. I have to be honest and say that I was reminded why I gave up making booties so many years ago ~~I have a devil of a time getting two the same size! Here they are, with the booklet the pattern came from. Gee, I don't remember it costing 35 cents! I guess that was before the inflation of the Nixon years??
