Better late than never Blanket

Pattern: I used the Fantasy Blanket as a starting point, free on Ravelry here.
J picked the colours when he was 2.5 years old. I finished it about a month before his 4th birthday... He still loves the red bobbles! :)

2 years later...

I can't believe I haven't posted anything since J's first winter... To be honest, I haven't completed many projects, and it seems the little I have done I haven't photographed properly!
Pattern: free on Ravelry
I followed instructions for the smallest size. As I wasn't sure of how it was going to fit, I decided to do a provisional cast on and started with the cable pattern straight away. Then I picked up the stitches to knit the ribbing.

More baby booties...

Pinky Booties for Danielle's baby girl

Pattern: Saartje's Bootees, Ravelry (modified)
DK yarn, 3mm needles, smallest size

I followed the pattern up to row 24, then I realised all the ends I’d have to weave in so I decided to change it slightly…
-Break off the yarn after row 24, leaving a long tail.
-Carefully take all the stitches off the needles and place them on stitch holders.
-Sew up the seam (back and sole) with the tail. Weave in CO tail at that point too.
-row 25: put the 20st back onto your needles. With long tail cast on (leave long tail), CO 10st, k1 with both tail and working yarn; then k1 with working yarn, K1 with tail until you get to the last stitch: k1 with both tail and working yarn; CO 10.
-row 26-27: k
-row 28: BO
I’ll definitely be making more, they’re so cute!
