hey y'all!

so earlier today, i posted derby baby booties, which is a gift for my expecting friend, however, i knew if i didn't tell someone i was making them, i'd accidentally let it slip and tell her - so i told my friend toni (another girl on my derby team) & made her my 'secret-keeper' (yay harry potter nerds) so as a thank you, i made her some baby booties!

however, since she is not expecting (happily, i dare say so!) i decided the full sized ones would be a little less than useful.

so i made her little ornaments! they're attached by the tail, so they can be put on a xmas tree, or a car rearview mirror, or really whatever she'd like, i'm not picky.

i also made some for myself, because they were so damn adorable. and instead of knitting wheels, pom-poms were a lot easier :0)

so i hope you liked them, as well as my grandparents fantastic couch slipcovers!

well i can't take full credit for them, but the pattern was based off of 'knock down knits' by toni carr, who is from naptown rollergirls!

i CO 35 ST using US size 2 needles in a baby super soft black yarn.
knit for for approx. 1/2'', as that'll be where you glue on the pom-poms
purl for one entire row.
after that, knit 15, then k2together, k, k2together, knit 15.
p14, p2together, p, p2together, p14.
k13 k2tgthr, k, k2tgthr, k13
p12 p2togthr, p, p2tgthr, p12
k11 k2tgthr, k, k2tgthr, k11
p10 p2tgthr p p2tgthr, p10
k9 k2tgthr k k2tgthr k9

purl for one row, then garter stitch 5 rows.
BO - fold Finished item with the back out. i recommend using a different color for the laces, but it's easier to sew the "laces" up before i sew the boot up.
 using an embroidery needle (or one with a big assed-eye) use some of the yarn you just knit with (or don't, be free & junk) i just whipstitched the bottom & back of the darn thing, then flipped the right side out. ta-da.

hope that made sense. message me for inquires or whatever :0)
