Well I wanted something different to knit - and came across these gorgeous booties here http://www.dreamweaveryarns.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=22_77_146&products_id=741 (original post faraboverubies)
I don't have a specific recipient for these, so I didn't do them in the ruby red (but when I do I will!)
So here they are in green (with pearly buttons)
There's one on its own....
and this picture is because I couldn't get over how small they were (excuse inky fingers - just done a three hour exam)
