Amidst the gloom of wintery grey weather, I'm working on bright and cheery baby stuff.
The hat went rather quickly--worked on it mostly during naptime whilst my toddlers slept. I've made this hat twice already--hard to beat a practical and equally cute pattern. Its Berry Baby Hat (Rav link). The only 2 mods were to include a ribbed brim( instead of a rolled one--personal preference) and addition of 8 extra stitches after the ribbing. I used Red Heart Smoothie which feels like a silky cotton but is actually 100% acrylic. The spring-like colours have a nice sheen and a soft hand.
Right now I'm working on some matching booties. I'm using Bernat Baby Booties (Rav link) which has easy-to-follow instructions. The plan is to add some green trim 'round the cuff so the items will match. The recipient isn't due till April, so I hope to add either a second hat or matching socks . . . not sure which yet.
