So I finished my second knitting project ever, the Layette Hat from Vintage Knits for Modern Babies. There was a lot of yarn left so I started knitting up the Pom-Pom booties to go with the hat.
Aren’t these pom-poms the cutest? It took 13 feet of yarn for each pom-pom to get them this full.
Problem is, I needed a different size of needle to finish the booties, so I had to go back into the land of temptation that is my local yarn store. I came out with the required needles plus two more balls of the cozy cream-colored merino angora, plus an orchid bamboo/wool blend and a celery green alpaca/silk yarn. Well the baby can’t have just one hat, can she? And doesn’t knitting for baby require the softest, coziest yarns available? Thought so.
