those booties are sooooo tiny ;_; I love that they aren't identical, but you can still tell that everything matches!

I use a yarn needle and weave in the ends through about 5 stitch's on the back of the work making sure i split a few stitch's with the needle.. then go back in the other direction and do the same thing almost in a "S" or snake like pattern then clip  off the yarn close to the knitting....works for me .. I'm sure there are other methods of tucking in the ends. I try to weave each end into the same color..(make sure when u change color to leave about a 4" tail)(^_^)

Someone here on Craftster said they did this, and it's great - weave in your ends, and then using sewing thread and a needle in a color as close as matching as possible, sew the end to the knitted fabric. It's woven in and it won't pop out!

That set is beautiful. I love the colors. Especially the booties they are adorable. Do you have the pattern for the booties or did you do them without a pattern?

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.
