A friend that I studied Journalism with had a baby boy at the start of this year. Even though I haven’t seen my friend since I finished my studies in 2004 I still wanted to knit her something. So I knitted my usual go-to beanie and bootie combo.
The beanie is my old favourite from DROPS, and I knit this up in the 0-3 months size since it was going to be a Winter baby.
I also knitted up my version of Saartjes Bootees in a matching green and light blue.
I boxed both of them up in one of my boxes and sent them off to my friend.
My friend sent me a picture of her sweet little boy in his little hat. Such a cutie.
