Dragging my butt on the Muppet Pimp Coat.

How to: Procrastinate in knitting in a somewhat productive manner. Don't work on a Muppet Pimp Coat, but knit a t-bar baby shoe for no reason other than it looked cute in the book.



Me? Procrastinate? Uh-uh.


Rowan Cotton Glace in Glee, Zoe Mellor's 50 Baby Bootees to Knit (thanks again, Carolyn!) and a little pearly button. Now all I need is for someone I know to have a baby girl so I can knit the shoe's mate and give them as a gift.

(And no, I've made no progress on the Muppet Pimp Coat. Hear that noise? That's me dragging my butt on working on it.)

Those are adorable! Do they come in adult sizes, too? Just had to give you a guest appearance on the blog today. Looked up "Muppet Coat" on Google and, lo and behold, there you were! What I imagine you to look like, anyway. Never mind the "irrational" word in the pic -- the software is not as sophisticated as I. (Or is it the other way around?) What can I say? You're just so darn inspirational!
Totally adorable. So tiny!!
What a cute bootie :) - so dainty - I love it! I have a question to help you procrastinate... What sizes do the patterns go up to in Zoe Mellor's 50 Baby Booties to Knit ? Sasha is about 8 months now and I am wondering if I would be able to make many booties for her anymore now that she is turning into a Toddler before my eyes. Thanx a bunch ;)
Wow! I "saw" you in your Pink Muppet Pimp coat on Kerstin's site! I didn't know you snowboarded too? Love the baby bootee! I almost got that book and now I know I need it!
How beautiful! And now I want to have a little girl more than ever.
If you liked this t-bar baby shoe from Zoe Mellor's book, keep your eye out. There are LOTS of things from that book that I'll be knitting just because they look cute. (I even had yarn sent over from the U.K. so I can do the sheep slippers. I'm addicted to cute, I tell you.) Tiffany, largest size is 9 months but lots of these designs could be easily adapted for a larger baby, and many of them are knit with cotton.
You made it on the blog again . . . a cool chick, indeed. Was there every any doubt?
Bonjour Rebecca, je suis Canadienne et je lis quotidiennement tes commentaires sur tes différents projets de tricot. Bravo, ils sont empreints d'intelligence et d'humour. La semaine prochaine, moi et mon mari partons pour Paris pour une semaine. J'espère y trouver, entre autres, de la laine à profusion. Pour terminer, la couleur du chandail de ton mari est parfaite: il est chanceux de pouvoir porter un si beau vêtement.

Bonjour Christine, je te remercie pour ces gentils commentaires et pour visiter mon site. Je suis sûre que tu vas trouver des tonnes de laine (entre autres belles choses) à Paris. Si tu passais par Lyon, fais le moi savoir. Bon voyage!
Hi Becky! That is the cutest thing I have ever seen - makes you want to have a little girl just so you can dress her up.
Maybe we should have a mini competition. See who can make the most bootees from the book! I'm 3 pairs down and a whole load more on the wishlist. They are perfect for train knitting, fit in to my handbag easily and smaller needles mean less chance of elbowing / stabbing person next to me... Should the challenge be first one to make and show 10 pairs wins a prize? hee hee (feeling competitive today!)
