Fphdc and bphdc!! Arrghhhh

So done the sole of the said booties, and today got up all inspired to get maybe the body of the bootie done .. Only to find the body is made up of fphdc’s and bphdc’s .. Never done that before!?
So I researched, I watched a tutorial and struggled and unraveled I don’t know how many times! But in the end I GOT IT! And I can see now what the stitch is useful for. I can’t believe this hasn’t come up in other stuff I’ve done. But I’m thinking maybe this alternating of the abides stitches gives you a cable effect, so perhaps it’s used on clothes and baby booties etc .. Therefore I have not done stuff like that. So I’m very proud of myself. I’ve learned 2 new stitches and the first row of them looks great! Woot! I really didn’t think I was gonna get .. I kept doing the stitches and then having a look and it was just jumbled up knots lmao!
Now it’s a nice uniformed back and forth edge. Which now I have to do another round putting each stitch above the next. Ie: fphdc’s on previous fphdc’s and bphdc’s over previous bphdc’s. I hope it works .. I can’t wait till I have some more spare time. Cause I’m SO c,one to doing the crocodile stitch, which is one of my fav’s. So I’m looking forward to her TINY crocodile stitch. If you do the stitch with dc’s like normal you get scales that are too big for 0-2. So she does hdc’s instead.
I want to see how this tiny scale looks! :)

So that’s me in a rather large and rambling nutshell for today :p
I’ll post photos tomorrow if I can get the last round of the body in.

bootie got sole! hehe .. see what i did there? 

So it begins! Ive done the sole .. i thought i had done it EASY .. until i realised that i think the number of sc’s around the sole HAS to be 50 .. i thought since there are no stitches to work out of i thought when she said sc evenly around the sole that it was just to give it an edge and neaten it up .. but no i was wrong. I mean i saw that it said 50 at the end of the row instruction (usually always tells you the number of stitches you should have) but then i read on and i think it does matter . so ive been painstakingly trying to FIND the 3 stitches i was short of … arrghhhh. but i got it in the end!!!

I knew this was gonna be hard .. but i thought the sole would be easy peasy lol

anyway ill share my crappy photos of my phone of “the sole” :)

Ok! Hooked up my swatch for the booties. ( if you don’t know the booties I’m referring to, look down a post or two,cause you’re missing out if you haven’t seen them!) And YES! The yarn I already have us perfect. It says worsted yarn, I didn’t know what that was. So I looked it up and AGAIN I lucked it and this yarn of mine is worsted! 

Gosh I’m SO excited and intimidated all at the same time!
Not sure if I should just do some crocodile stitch just to get into gear?
Arggh gosh I hope I can do this •_•

Good start though, swatch is exactly as specified :)

ok here are some cute things i found last night while looking for my next venture .. the booties are top of the list for now .. depends if i think i can make them. I think i should have a go at some plain booties since i’ve never made anything like that before?

anyway hope you like the photo set :) Next up are some pathetic photos of my bunting .. they do look better in person.

Enjoy! x

These deserve a photo all to themselves .. Aren’t they DIVINE!! The pattern is on rav, you can buy it for $5 bit less for us in Aust ;) The pattern description sounds promising, lots of photos and lots of sizes from 0-2 and 5-12! Pretty cool. …. I want a pair for winter so bad lol! I think ALOT of grow ups do cause there are ALOT of pattern variations for larger feet! But they cannot compare to this design. Obviously the yarn here is what just makes it pop, and I happen to have some king cole riot yarn!!! And I LOVE crocodile stitch! :)
