Some Baby Things

These baby tie shoes are from Crotiques pattern site.

These will be donated to the local pregnancy resource center.

This is a baby set I made to donate to the local pregnancy resource center also. The sweater is from a pattern I found online a long time ago. The yarn I used is Caron Jumbo Prints, and since it is WW, my sweater turned out to be bigger than the pattern. It's about 6 month size. I couldn't find a hat pattern that looked like it went with the sweater, so I designed my own. Most of the booties patterns that I liked were too small to go with the sweater, so I designed my own booties too.

Inauguration Chapeau

This is the Inauguration Chapeau designed by Ellen Bloom.
pattern is here: Inauguration Chapeau

I used Vanna's choice in linen. I had to leave out a row of the tie, because the pattern called for 220 yards of yarn and I had only 197 yards. However, I think another row of DC would've made the tie too wide anyhow.
This hat is a little large on the mannequin head, but it fits me perfectly.
