I have a colleague at work who is obsessed with Bigfoot. Seriously. So when I saw this crocheted bigfoot/yeti pattern, I knew that I had to make it for her. These little guys are pretty hilariously adorable, and I'm sure I'll be making more. I did the yeti first and decided to go down a hook size on the next attempt, just to keep stuffing from showing through the stitching. I like the bigfoot better, so I'll be sure to go with the smaller size in the future.
And my colleague who is expecting a baby fell in love with combat booties that she found on etsy. Because I'm a kind soul, I offered to make them for her, if she bought the pattern and the yarn she wanted. I think these newborn size are pretty stinking cute, and she loved them! (They were also much too tiny, so more sizes will be coming her way in the future.)
Speaking of more sizes, my nephew's daddy is a soldier, so I thought he might need some for Christmas. I made two sizes to send, just because I wasn't sure of sizing. I think they turned out pretty nice! Hopefully they get used.
