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.
