A little while ago I posted pictures of a sage green WIP baby bolero from One Skein, and I guess it never got it's finished photo taken. Too late now as it's off to it's new home and it's still nearly two months until this baby plans to arrive. I brought my knitting to the baby shower and quickly whipped up the coordinating hat (see above) out of Blue Sky Cotton. I just guessed on the # of stitches to cast on, and guessed on the decreases and really I don't think the baby will mind that I've never figured out how to do the jogless join neatly and thus gave up on it halfway through her hat.
The other baby project on the needles are these booties in leftover sock yarn. Based on the ubiquitous booty pattern, I changed the garter stitch rows because I prefer a smoother knit. This one isn't complete yet, there are still a few ends to weave in and really with this varigated yarn it's hard to get a feel for the actual booty - all you see is COLOR!!! The second booty is started, the sole is complete but I somehow lost a couple of my #2 dpns during my last travels. I did have Susan Bates metal dpns but think that I'll replace those with bamboo just as soon as I can get to the yarn store.
