Baby Bootie Follow-Up

You remember these guys, don't you?

That's right, they were the last-minute, KitchenAid-felted, 3-in-1 felted baby booties.

The recipient was the lovely Brandy Fortune.  I met Brandy at TNNA in June, but didn't realize I would be meeting her until the day before I left.  Brandy emailed me a while back and volunteered to take pictures of my 3-in-1 Felted Baby Booties on her daughter, Rowan.  This is why there was such a rush to complete the baby booties (and thus the infamous KitchenAid experiment).  To tell you the truth, I actually sat at a table in the Bryson Distributing Booth at the TNNA marketplace finishing these little booties... all because I forgot my sharp needles and had to take one off their display unit in order to sew on velcro and embroidery... really (Thanks, wonderful people at Bryson!). 

Anyway, Brandy is the author of the online blog Pixie Purls, and also has a pattern line to go along with it.  The Milk Infant Top has been a favorite of mine since it was published:

Besides having her own blog and pattern line, Brandy is also Co-Editor, Photo Editor, and Web Diva of the ever-popular Petite Purls. Petite Purls is an online knitting magazine that offers free children's patterns seasonally.  If you haven't seen it yet, it's a must!

So are you itching to see the beautiful shots of the baby booties on an actual baby?!?  I'm sure you are!

Aren't they just adorable?!
There are more, too!  You can see the rest of the photos here.

And while we are on the subject of baby items, I could use a little advice.  I know many of you are mothers and help for a soon-to-be-mom is always appreciated.  yesterday on my day off I started registering for my baby showers- I thought it would be easy, but quickly learned I was in over my head.  Is there anything in particular that you love, couldn't live without?  Anything I should pass on?

I'd love to hear what you have to say!
