Baby crafts continue


After finishing this little sweater, with a bit of delay due to moving house and everything it involved, I set myself to work on a matching cap. It's largely done and only needs two rows or so of trimming. Booties coming soon to complete the set!

I hope all the ladies who wrote to me last time asking for this sweet pattern will have fun working on it. I love it because it has such detailed instructions and so there's very little risk of getting stuck because you don't understand what you are supposed to do next.

I love this soft cream color, but at the same time find myself longing for something brighter. Perhaps my next project will be more colorful.

Have a lovely day and weekend, everyone!

What a darling cap. It makes me want to get out my crochet needles and make something. :)

I have never done crochet, just knitting, wish I could learn...your cap is gorgeous!

Beautiful handiwork, Anna. Simply lovely. Stop by and check out my little homemaker in action.

Ways of Zion, crocheting is actually very simple! All you need to do is learn a few stitches, and then even the most complicated-looking pattern is just a combination of them. Trust me - if I can do it, anyone can. :-)

That is so cute. That cream color with an accent of a pale pink would be gorgeous!!

You have a lovely tension (gauge) to your work Anna.

It's just beautiful, Anna! I know your precious little girl will look like a doll wearing it. Great job.

So cute -- I wish I could do that! My grandma tried to teach me to crochet, but I am absolutely hopeless at needle crafts.

What a darling set!

Anna,
I hope you had a restful weekend. The hat you're making looks like a cap, rather than the bonnet in the pattern - did you modify it? I just finished the sweater, and I think I'm going to try a cap too. Yours is adorable!

Karis, it *is* the bonnet, very similar to the pattern - I suppose I couldn't capture it properly in this particular photo. :o)

Beautiful pattern. These little things are so neat to touch and hold and look at while you are patiently awaiting your baby's arrival.

Haven't popped in in such a long time - and just as I was coming here, for some reason I wondered if you were pregnant... and you are! Congratulations Anna!! That is wonderful news, and sorry for such a belated response! I hope you and your daughter to-be are doing very well :)
