when mom and dad came to visit in november, i bought one of these patterns on etsy. mom taught me how to read the pattern and a bunch of stitches i didnt know. after working with it a long time and changing the pattern, we came up with some booties. i made a pair of red and grey ones for ninja. i figure he'll have plenty of red and grey clothes to wear them with. i'm also really excited that i can crochet something besides a scarf now! yay!
