FO Blanket and booties for new niece
The pattern for the blanket is in my head. I kind of made it freeform. I started with a patch of color, and started picking up stitches from all sides and kept on knitting. Clearly I learned a lot about what to do and what not to do when picking up stitches. It's okay, thought, I think it came out alright.



The booties I made out of an old crochet website I found in a dollar bin. I can try to find the issue, but it's a pretty old book. I was really excited to make them, because of how cute they are.



I'm working on another blanket, that will be more of a big kid blanket versus a baby one. I'll send pics when I'm finally done!

hope you like
