The pattern knits up very easily, then takes a year to finish! You have to embroider all the lines of Plush except the very top band which is knitted in. The only other problem is that the yarn (Berocco Suede) is a trillion dollars. The good news is, I was able to make the soles and the fuzzy stuff from the leftover from the first pair, so for this pair I only had to buy the main color. So now instead of one pair of $30 booties, I have made two pair of $20 booties, which is still no bargain but somehow much easier to take. I figure I paid a little bit for the enjoyment of knitting these, and a little more for the happy reaction that I know they are going to get.
BB was somewhat annoyed that she couldn't get her big fat paws in them, but she was somewhat mollified by being able to pose alongside them. If I ever get that Dulaan scarf blocked, she will definitely be able to make an appearance in that.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
