|Big boy converse...|
Not one to shy away from the opportunity to inflict knitted creations on others; I realized that the new baby would be in dire need of hip and stylin' kicks. In fact, here's another one of the pictures from the proud poppa-to-be's blog at http://brandxsketch.blogspot.com where he's rocking the same flavor of shoes.

|Not-so-big boy's chucks|
One of the things I liked most about this project was the reaction of the adults that saw them. While I was blocking them with little paper towels inside, my boyfriend came home to find them on the counter. Even though I was in the bedroom, I still heard his 'that's so cute' voice/squeal saying, "OOOO! WEE LITTLE BOOOOTIES!". I'm not sure if I smiled wider at that or the postal clerk who thought they were darling and couldn't resist commenting as I mailed them off. There is something about a stranger commenting on something I've made that makes me feel like I did as a kid when my artwork secured a coveted spot on the refrigerator gallery.
