Purple knitted booties

well that's what this is going to be when i'm done...

pretty color huh? i found the pattern online somewhere and now i'm not sure where. i'm making them for bella b/c she's still too small to wear shoes... and i like the booties! i have this idea in my head. you see my friend Liesy has 2 sons and her Grandmother knitted them booties in all colors and sizes for their sweet feet. now i would've asked her grandma for a pattern but she speaks German and is getting on in life. and Liesy said she doesn't knit them from a pattern. so i've been looking for a pattern for booties close to the ones i saw the boys wearing and i think i've found one. well i tweeked the pattern a bit to get what i wanted. and i'm still not sure it's what i wanted. we'll see when i'm done! that's what i want to be like when i'm old knitting from memory! not needing a pattern how cool is that?
ok so lately i've been really down. you see my best friend Kelly is moving back to the states. SNIF! and double snif. so i've been getting down. i mean it's not like i didn't expect it. but still it sucks. so not only that but my friend Danielle has been working a lot lately and i've not been able to spend time with her! so i've been kinda crabby. and i really can't put into words what i'm feeling. i'm sad but also so much more! anyways Tonight we're going to this great restarunt Steak on the Stone. i've never been there but Kelly and her DH has and everyone says it's awesome. we'll see tonight. then on Sat everyone and i mean everyone! is coimng over here for a BBQ to say goodbye. i'm so sad. so my sadness has been coming out in my knitting. (i think) I keep on starting new projects and thinking of more to start! LOL
ok i think i'm just going on and on and i'll stop that now. i am not even sure i'm making any sense.....
have a good day

You're right about the color. That purple is gorgeous! Sorry about your friend moving. We live in a university town so there are always people coming and going. I can only imagine it's the same on a base. It's sad but then you know someone new is going to come eventually!

Keep on knitting! You can never have too many projects on the needles!

Hi Allena, this is my first visit to your blog. I don't know why it took me so long to find you! The purple is a gorgeous colour and I love your bright and cheerful socks. It must be really hard for both of you with Kelly leaving, but the world is a very small place now with all the ways we can communicate with each other. Yes, I know, it's all about finding the time, but if you want to, you do. That reminds me; I owe my best friend, who lives hundreds of miles away, an e-mail! Guess I'd better go and do it now ......
