When my niece was born there was a little drama. My husband makes leather cowboy boots and I crochet. The crocheted pair is easy to fit, and quicker to make. They are not better than the leather ones and they are cute.
He decided since I was so quick to get mine there that he would make her some small leather moccasins. And saved her “real” cowboy boots until she could walk in them. I think she get the best of both worlds. My husband is sure that she will get more use out of his, and that’s true. But dang it. Mine are cute!
Kind of sad that we seem to be competing already.
