Baby hat and booties


Well! Long time no crochet, but I think I’ve still got it!

Baby hat, booties

I made these baby booties and hat for a friend’s baby shower. Although I’m still not sure if I got the sizing right for a tiny person (they might be a bit big), I think they came out pretty well. My big little brother, who is a 6′ 4″ metal music playing manly man, actually used the adjective “adorable” to describe them without any prompting from me.

I crocheted them using the yarn I spun in the last post. It was quite fun to work with, if I do say so myself!

We have some fun posts lined up for you this week. I’m already knee deep in another project, the girls (the alpaca girls) have been up to their usual shenanigans, and a bit of a wrench was thrown into the daily chore routine recently.

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.

    • I hope so. I haven’t heard back from the gal I gave them to. Which is strange.

      I wish I’d spun the yarn a little thinner. Would have made making something so small much easier. Eh. Never made such tiny little products before.

  3. Adorable is the right word – they turned out really well! =D

    • Thanks! They were my first booties. First hat too, I guess. I crochet blankets mostly, and I spin.

      I wish I had a smaller hook, but I was feeling too lazy to run out and find a smaller one before I started the project.
