Remember my February Baby Blanket from my last post? Well, the yarn that I used for it was Mill Ends that came in a giant bag. A 1/2 pound of the beige acrylic yarn, to be exact. And that’s a lot of yarn.
I’ve knit up a few more things for baby E using more of the yarn. Having time off school means that a few days is enough time to finish a set like this one.
The hat is another Vintage Sweet (I also made one of these for Miss E a little while ago). I like this pattern a lot, but I did change a few things this time. I didn’t change to the larger needles for the body, partly because I didn’t find that the hat needed to be that big, and quite frankly, because I couldn’t find my larger DPNs. (Rav link)
I made a rose instead of the included flower pattern, and the rose pattern is here. It only worked up to the end of the medium petals because I wanted a smaller flower.
The booties are the Oh! Baby Booties, but worked with worsted weight yarn. I used the needle size called for in the pattern and made the newborn size, and I hope they’ll fit little E when the weather starts to cool down a bit. (Rav link)
The purple I used for both the hat and the booties is Red Heart Super Saver in the colour way Damson. It’s not the nicest to knit with but it does soften up after washing and I always try to make baby gifts machine washable. (New Moms don’t need any more work, right?)
The best part? There’s still lots more of that yarn…
