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.



Pattern: First coat, by Debbie Bliss (from Essential Baby)
Yarn: Rosários 4 Merinoland in pink (2.2 skeins), Drops Baby merino in brown (0.2 skeins)
Needle: 3 mm
Size: 0-3 months

Pattern: Saartje's booties
Yarn: Rosários 4 Merinoland in pink (0.5 skeins), Drops Baby merino in brown (0.2 skeins)
Needle: 2.5 mm
Size: small

So beautiful! I'm trying to make those booties with a crochet pattern that I found but I'm not quite good enough yet with a crochet hook. Ah well, I will be patient.
