Baby Uggs

I made these for a classmate (my cellmate on the recently concluded Oto rotation, actually) who is due in 4 weeks.

Pattern: Suede booties by Candi Jensen
Yarn: Soles and body of booties were done in Berroco Suede (in chocolate brown and tan colors) and fleece trim in Berroco Plush.
Needles - size 4 for the soles, size 5 for the body and trim.

These booties were a fun knit. The pattern is easy to follow, and I was able to knit up both in a total of about 5 hours. Super fast.

I finished Oto on Friday, and all in all, it was not that bad. The residents were nice, and they taught me how to do a thorough head and neck exam. I also learned the importance of providing your patients with adequate pain relief when you're manipulating a head/neck wound - the head and neck are heavily vascularized and innervated, and it seems that any repair of anything on the head/neck can be exquisitely painful. I saw several patients writhe in pain while they were being treated - it seems unnecessary to make someone endure something so painful when narcotics and other very good analgesics are available.

On a lighter note, I have a free weekend! I have some plants outside ready to go in the ground and a truckbed full of mulch. I see some gardening in my future.

Happy weekend!

That must have been fun making the uggs. What a good job you did! You have really turned into a knitin' dynamo. Bet you will enjoy/have enjoyed working outside in your yard. Much, much love to you and yours.
