So this baby is going to be awesome. And I thought, awesome baby needs an awesome hand crocheted set, so my awesome friend can tell people, "my awesome friend made these for my awesome baby". It's all about me really.
I gave this gift to my friend yesterday. There were tears. You know you've done something right if you make them cry, a motto I live my life by. I probably would have cried if I received this layette as a gift too - I'm so so so proud of it so obviously am very excited to show it off to you now! Many gratuitous photos to follow.
|Bah! The only photo I took with the set showing the whole blanket. Blurry, but you get the idea.|
I didn't like the bonet that went with the set (I don't really see babies wearing bonets), and I couldn't understand what the pattern was on about when it came to the booties, so I didn't make those either. Instead I made these Mary Jane Booties. I made these very late in the piece, so I feel they're a bit rushed, and they're really only going to fit awesome baby as a newborn. But cute! And matching buttons. Ravelled here.
|I struggled to take a photo of these, but behold - booties!|
|See how it has matching stripes?? and the edge folds up??|
|10 points if you can spot the embedded cat hairs.|
|Blocking a bit wobbly, but how often are you going to spread the blanket out and look at the whole thing? I'm guessing, not very often.|
