You might remember me posting about a hat and bootie combo for a friend of mine. Well this last week she sent me some pictures of her absolutely gorgeous girl in the beanie and booties…and I’m just going to let the pictures do the talking.
Earlier this year I knitted myself another hat. You might remember me posting about my first hat here, which was back in 2012. I really do like my dark purple hat, but it’s just not warm enough when it gets cold and windy here, so I decided on a thicker one with a nice cable pattern, of course another DROPS pattern.
As I have a dark purple winter coat and a bright pink parka I thought this light purple/lilac would work well. I actually love this colour, ever since I used it to knit some gloves for a swap.
I love the cables on this hat and how they create this gorgeous crown…just a shame that when I wear it I can’t really see it.
Continuing with my posting in alphabetical order, here’s a hat I knitted for my husband for Christmas.
It’s one of the more boring FOs I have made, but the pattern is nice and quick. I used DROPS Merino Extra Fine in a dark brown, so that me husband can wear it with pretty much anything. And he likes it, which is a bonus. So, without further ado, here are some pictures.
I’ve got two things on the go at the moment. They are both very quick items that I love knitting and that I’ve knitted A LOT in the last year…but to be honest I still haven’t blogged about them all…so watch this space.
The first WIPs are these booties, following the Saartjes Bootees pattern, but with my alteration. These are for a boy, hence my colour choices.
I wasn’t 100% convinced about the colours initially, but now I really like them. I think they’re perfect for Spring and since this baby boy is due beginning of May I think they’ll work perfectly.
I’ve also just finished something for Luke…and had to order some buttons for it from TextileGarden…there are some really pretty ones left over that make me think that I should find something for myself to knit to fit with the buttons. Have you ever done that, knitted around buttons that you had?
And finally, just a quick preview of what I just finished for Luke.
Linking in with Tamis Amis today for WIP Wednesdays.
