My Latest Knitting Projects

Lately I have been doing a lot of knitting as a way to use up some of the yarn I have.  Coincidentally, my husband has two cousins who are having little girls.
This first set I made a couple of months ago.  The hat looks like a flower from the top, and I embroidered little flowers on the sides of the booties.  It was my first time doing booties and I think they turned out pretty well.  The parents loved them. 

This blanket I had started for another friend who was pregnant and could not get it done in time.  This was the first project I had done that was bigger than a scarf. It took a lot of time, but I think it was worth it.  I could not get a picture of the one I made, and this one is much better made than mine anyway.  Mine is made out of the same purple as the above hat and booties.

  1. Very sweetly done Amanda. I used to crochet baby booties and blankets years ago, knitting looks nicer and lasts longer thought!
