This set was for my neice in MD...
The afghan came out sorta wonky- I think I will revise this pattern if I make it again...

I did change the afghan pattern a bit so the"popcorn"s are actually on the right side of the knitting rather than the wrong side- :thinking: I also used a bit more yarn than was called for so that it wasn't too long of a rectangle.

These are really fun patterns to do!! I've actually knit the sweater 4 times!
Try it- can't wait to see your FO's!!! :D

It is all precious, Alicia.

I was looking at the link you gave for the bonnet pattern, and it doesn't specify yarn weight and needle size, though the patterns above it and below it both do. I was wondering what size you used. I'm making some things for a new step-grandbaby, and I really like that bonnet. :D

Oh Alicia! WOW! Great work, you must be so proud!

I hate to be picky, but could you please post another picture of the blanket! That is if its not already in the mail! I'm having a hard time seeing it in that light and would love to see it.

Gorgeous work!

Here is another pic of the set- I agree Pixie- that other pic was difficult to see much in...
Renna- I actually used 10 1/2 circ needles and my fave new yarn, Bernat satin. I could knit with it forever! (which is good- b/c if DH ever figures out how much I have stashed, I'm in trouble! ;) ) Its actaully a little small for the 10 1/2s, but I love it anyway! That bonnet is a quick knit, the worst part being the seaming- I hate seaming...
Btw- I added another couple rows of ss at the end of the bonnet, just so it wouldn't roll as much. Also, my new neice was 8 lbs 12 oz so I figured she might need more hat.
Can't wait to see your FO! :thumbsup:
