A Couple Smaller Knitting Projects

As I mentioned yesterday, I finished up a couple small knitting projects over the weekend too: a bonnet and pair of booties. Last night I sewed on the buttons so I could count them as truly complete. Overall they were really fun patterns, only required some leftover yarn from my stash and were quick as it took me just over a week to finish both projects (and I'm not really that productive of a knitter, despite what my recent posts may have conveyed). Here are the details:
Pattern: Marshmellow Hat from Itty Bitty Hats
Designer: Susan B. Anderson
Yarn: Plymouth Encore
Ravelry Link
Comments: Surprisingly this was my first project involving seed stitch, and I really enjoyed it and the end result. I left off the embellishments that the pattern called for, because I prefer it simple.
Pattern: Mary Jane Booties
Designer: Lucie Sinkler
Yarn: Plymouth Encore
Ravelry Link
Comments: I still had some yarn left over after making the bonnet, and after seeing the Mary Jane Booties Barb knitted I just had to make me a pair too. I'm sure I'll be making more in an assortment of colors.

Oh and since yesterday was 26 weeks, here is the latest belly pic for you to.

OMG. The bonnet and mary janes are ADORABLE! I wish that I had the patience to learn to knit. I guess I can just leave it up to you to knit my future children things!

So cute! I've always had more patience for crocheting than knitting, but that pretty much limits me to blankets. All these knit baby projects are just so cute....
