Crocheted Baby Booties: I swear this is a lost art. Soon as I found out I was preggo with a girl, I made myself learn this fine art. I crocheted her baptismal gown and so many other fun things. I prefer size 10 thread or higher for anything decorative or clothing related. I was crocheting some booties in the hospital the other day and so many people were awed at what I was doing. A travesty I tell you!
