I finished up the hat and bootie set last night. As it is 5:36am as I type this, in the middle of winter, I have no natural sunlight to photograph them in. I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, single strand for the booties and double stranded for the hat. I knew as soon as I casted on for the hat that I wouldn't have enough of the blue for the whole thing, so I decided on the fly to make the brim blue and the rest white. There's another baby due in the same family in April, so I'll use up the rest of the white on that one, and get some lavendar to compliment it (next up is a girl).
The colors in this picture are pretty true.
I also just found out that my childhood friend is expecting! She's due in August, so I have plenty of time to make a baby sweater or two.
But right now I will turn my attention to the Round Trip sweater. I will try my hardest not to start another project until I finish a sleeve. Oh, screw it. I know I'll break that one! It's time to start some fingerless gloves!
