I have been doing some knitting and crocheting, but not as much as I would like. Here are my lastest projects.
A lady at our co-op is expecting to be a Grandmother by the end of November. I wanted to make a few baby hats, booties, and anything else I can do for her.
Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat by Keri McKiernan. Love the sock hats. This is a pattern that I have made before. I thought I had blogged about it, but guess I haven’t. I’ll write something about it later.
The rolled bottom and the knot at the top makes this very cute. Yarn: Patons Kroy Socks FX
The booties are Roll-Tops by Hayley Missingham, from Ravelry. I picked this pattern because the rolled top matches the hat above and it is crocheted! Knitting socks or booties is still difficult for me. Yarn: Patons Kroy Socks FX. Hook: E 3.5mm This yarn is slightly varigated, so I started on the same color section for each bootie, to make them more of a match.
Another baby hat is the Shell Stitch Beanie by The Dainty Daisy. It is crocheted and since I am a fast crocheter, I made this in less than one hour while at the library. This one is very cute and does well with a huge flower on the side.
Next up is a cap for my sister for Christmas. I LOVE this pattern. Quick, Easy, and Stylish. The buttons on the side add a great touch to it. In Bloom Beret and Cap by Brittney Waterhouse. Yarn: Cascade 220
Pea #1 is modeling it for me. Isn’t she pretty? She kept oooing and awing over it after she had it on her head. That means I’ll be making her one also.
There are other things I have crochted or knitted, but they are for my other sister who might read this blog. 🙂
