I can’t knit. I once knew how to crochet, but I forgot, and I haven’t had the patience (or more importantly, the dexterity) to learn again. I satisfy my desire to knit and crochet by drooling over the beautiful scarves, sweaters, and wrist warmers I see on Etsy and arranging trades with people who know how to knit. A good friend of mine has agreed to knit me a scarf in exchange for a tote bag.
Last month, I serendipitously ended up in a trade with Knittinchick: a pair of hand knit baby Uggs in exchange for a wristlet. I mentioned before that I don’t have a baby, but I expect to have one some day and she or he will need stylish footwear. A bonus is that me suddenly having a pair of baby booties around has really freaked out SciFi man, who isn’t so sure about this whole baby thing just yet. Knittinchick’s baby Uggs arrived in the mail yesterday and they are just adorable. Tan, with little red bottoms! Someday, some baby is going to look very cute. Now, I’ve got to get that wristlet in the mail!
