This isn't my first FO...actually, FS...Finished Set :woohoo:


They are for my very first niece!! ^_^

But it's not exactly finished. I still have to knit one more bootie. I'm started on another of the green ones. I wanted to go ahead and post a picture since I'm giving the set to my sister tomorrow after I finish bootie #2.

They're made with Peaches&Creme 100% Cotton. The hat pattern is from http://knitwithkt.blogspot.com/2011/11/too-early-birthday-preemie-hat.html, the green bootie is from http://www.hipknitized.com/2009/10/these-cute-little-booties-are-made-from.html. The mittens are a pattern of my own devising, made to match the hat. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the link for the white bootie. I'll have to keep looking for it and update when I find it.

They didn't end up quite as soft as I wanted, but they are big enough that she can grow into them and besides, I just LOVED the green!!

Now, for the baby...She's the most adorable thing ever, and her shower is tomorrow. She was born 6 weeks premature and is doing amazingly. We hope she'll be released really soon.

Congratulations on completing your first set for your first niece! The collection is lovely, and maybe with a few washings, the cotton will become a little softer. I know the dishcloths I've made from this tend to get softer with use and washing.

What a lovely set! I love the deep green and white combination. Note to self -- make something with those colours :)

Thank you all for your replies! My sister loved the set, but my aunt(who crochets) outshone me at the shower with a beautiful sea green bonnet and booties. They were kind of a seashell pattern...But she's been doing it much longer than me so it's all good =)

I actually got the yarns for learning to crochet, but then I saw the hat and decided I just HAD to make something with the green, and the white matched nicely.

They are both about $1.77 at your local Wal-mart if anyone was wondering where to pick it up.
