Sorry for missing a post yesterday, I had an early night and feel much better for it.
An ex-colleague of mine is due to have a little girl any day now and when I found out about it earlier this year I thought I’d knit her a little hat and bootie combo. I was excited because I knew she was going to have a girl and as I’d just been knitting some flowers (more on that later) I really wanted to add some crochet or knitted flowers to the two items. So, without further ado, here are some pictures.So, I knitted her the DROPS bonnet that you’ve probably seen on my blog before. The pattern can be found here. And as you can see I added my own little crochet flowers.
I love this bonnet, and the effect the simple lace has on the finished item…it’s just too cute.
I also made another pair of Saartje’s Bootees for my friend and adorned them with some more of the crochet flowers.
Overall, I am very pleased with the finished pieces and my friend was too.
