Red MJs

(You know, because SpiderMan calls her MJ instead of MaryJane.)

I started these cute little booties with my left-over sock yarn for fun, and then when Audrey told us she was expecting, I knew just who they were going to!  So this is part of my Pay It Forward to Audrey, who was one of my first three commenters; I also made her a book bag with the sock monkeys.  Afterall, it's back to school time, and who couldn't use another book bag.  These booties are so cute and easy.  I could have finished them in one night, but I needed a crochet hook to make the button loops, and it took me a few weeks to find it on my craft table!  The buttons are vintage, from my dear grandmother's tin of saved buttons.  I'll definitely make more of these!

OMG! I love these! I had instructions for booties like this years ago but never had the knit or crochet skills to do them. They are soooo cute! Maybe I should try again.
