first coat (and booties to match)
It seems that all I have to show you craft wise lately have been baby knits. What can I say ? I've been trying to get as much done as possible before the baby decides to make her appearance (32 weeks and counting ...), and besides, it's quite motivational when I can finish a piece in a couple of weeks instead of months for a change :)
I really wanted to make this coat from Debbie Bliss ever since I saw the pattern, and although I'm very happy with the final result, I have to say that seaming up such a tiny piece was quite an ordeal.
The booties are the popular Saartje's booties, of course, and it seemed the perfect way to use up some of the remaining yarn.
