FO: Bonnie Lad in a Bonnie Hat

Earlier this year I knitted a hat and bootie combo for an old friend that I used to work with. She had the most gorgeous little boy and he’s lucky to be sharing his name with my little man: Luke.

He’s absolutely adorable, but let’s talk about some knitting first. I knitted the old favourite of the DROPS beanie hat and Saartjes Bootees.

This is the hat:

Even though my friend knew that she was having a boy I still went with a colour that I think could also work for a girl.

Here are the booties:

I choose some buttons from TextileGarden, which work very well indeed.

And now, here’s a final look at the booties and the hat.
