After the disappointment of Jaden I moved on to 'smaller' things. . . and here are those small things:
I finished the Debbie Bliss 'Little Charmer' and made some booties to match using this pattern on Ravelry. I simply changed the colors on the rib to make it match the vest. Super cute, don't you think?
Details: Little Charmer from Simply Knitting May 2008
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino - 2 skeins in 'Teal'
Elsebeth Lavold Cotton Patine - 1 skein in 'white'
Needles size 3.25mm and 3.75mm (US 3 and 5)
I used the next size up in needles simply because I didn't have 3mm, but as I've said before with babies it doesn't really matter. This size it to fit 3-6mths old, so who cares if it fits up to 9mths?
I have a lot of the white left over so I'm sure I can use it to trim some other baby clothes.
I should be finishing off the ladybug hat soon, and I have yarn to cast on for a sweet little top for Kristen.... all this and more - coming soon to a blog near you!
