Thread Crochet Booties for Sundays

"She needs something on her feet" my husband said, when we learned we'd be taking this baby church. So sweet, but she didn't have any socks. So I made up some with a little thread I had. I love this thread. I never thought I'd say that about a thread. I had given up thread crochet--so tired of the tangling, and it sometimes cut my dry cracked winter-hands. Someone suggested I try DMC Cebelia, in #10, and I love it! Don't be put off by the small balls, because there is a ton of thread wound on! It slides so easily. I can tell it will hold up to heirlooms much better--and isn't that what we want after all that thread work? To be able to hand it down? I hope this little gal will pass these on to her babies one day.
