About a year ago, I had this crazy idea to knit an alphabet of under-represented creatures and promptly started out with A is for Axolotl. Life got in the way, but Im still determined to finish my alphabet... even if it takes me a decade (or two). Anyway, Im proud to present to you... (drumroll please!): B is for Blue Footed Booby. This quirky little bird is known for its vibrant feet and can be found on the islands in the tropical eastern pacific.
