Footies, booties and a button...

I finished Mac's footies, and knit a pair for James.
I used leftover opal yarn and sz#1 needles.
I was visiting Bonnie's blog:-
and she had used leftover yarn to make Saartje's Booties. (A free pattern from Saarjte.) They were so cute I had to try a pair!!!!
I used leftover Trekking and Lornas Laces on sz#1 needles. These are knit in one piece and seamed.
As you can see the 'grand Poobah'

made me a button for my bag...a fan shaped wooden honey thanks!!!!! Matches the theme of the bag don't you think?????
I have no idea what to knit next. In fact you could say I have the knitting "blahs." I want to feel excitement and an urgency to knit when I see a project that catches my fancy...but nothing so far!!!!!!!
Next week I'm off to mother requested a visit and when "she who must be obeyed" speaks we all listen. I will not be back 'till October and I will probably have no access to a computer unless I go to the library and book an hour now and again. I should be able to visit my favourite blogs......but I imagine comments will be few and far between.
Happy knitting.
