Well! Long time no crochet, but I think I’ve still got it!
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.
Love those bootees and the hat. Look good in grey too.
Thanks! I wanted something soft without being pastel. This baby is going to be one hip little dude, so no baby blue for him!
Jared was right – ADORABLE!! These are just way too cute and I know they will be treasured gifts.
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.
I heard that she didnt open gifts – strange and rude!
I really wouldn’t know I guess; it was the first baby shower I’d been to. We did play a bunch of games, and had a lot of fun. But I still haven’t heard from her. Not sure what that means…
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.
