Last night, I spent two movies knitting a bootie just like the ones I finished at the beginning of the month. Except, I decided that I was going to make them Mary Janes with one strap and I screwed up figuring out how to do it and had to rip back. Unfortunately, I was trying to watch a movie and ended up dropping stitches. There wasn’t a crochet hook that I could easily find and eventually I decided to just frog the whole bootie. It was just a couple hours of work but my error help me figure out how to do one strap so I can do it again the right way.
But in honor of my failure, I thought I’d look back on some of the other baby projects I’ve knit in the last year or so.
I knit three sets of these Modern Cabled Baby Bibs for the babies of 2010. I love the buttons so much. The colors in this picture are horribly washed out. They were actually so bright and colorful.
Then I knit the Puffy Basketweave Baby Blanket. I loved the pattern but sort of hated the yarn I chose. I used Plymouth Yarn Jeannee Worsted and it was so soft and made a great blanket but it felt weird on my hands as I was knitting. Maybe it was too slippery?
I made this Greenleaf Baby Hat and loved the pattern and the way the leaf forms at the top.
Then I found this cute little Spring Baby Headband and made one in just a couple hours.
Add to that the booties I finished at the beginning of the month.
And the Baby Berry Hat.
