Prime Time KAL - 8/11 WIP & Finished
I made so many little things this month I was trying to decide the best way to post them.... sorry Adrienne, I posted the first WIP picture on 8/11. First I made a baby hat for my friend's grandbaby from the book Head & Toes by Gwen Steege using size 5 and 6 needles and Knit Picks Merino Style Yarn in Cornflower, Petal and Vanilla. I also made a pair of booties to go with the hat using Saartje's Booties with size 3 needles from Ravelry. I think they turned out darling and hopefully will actually fit at the same time. The hat and booties together are approximately 160 yards...
Another friend is having two grandbabies within 2 weeks of each other so I thought it would be fun to make the Berry Baby Hat by Michele Sabatier from Ravelry for the little girl. I used Cotton Fleece in Wisteria and Holly Green and size 7 and 8 needles. I made the Watermelon Hat by Stephanie McPhee for the boy using the same needles and Cotton Fleece in Barn Red and Holly Green. To add to the fun I made a pair of toddler socks for Berry Baby's big sister using the Wisteria yarn and the Party-Time Lace pattern from Knit a Dozen Socks by Edie Eckman. The two hats and toddler socks weighed over 100 grams so it was at least 215 yards. Had fun with all the little projects!
