I finished this set Sunday at 5:00AM for a baby shower that was later that morning. I LOVED making the booties. Found the pattern online. While knitting it I couldn't see how it would be a bootie. Until it was seamed together... before then it just looked like a blob. The hat was of my own creation but the inspiration was a hat Mason knit a while back that had "holes" in it. Loved it so I decided to knit one with "holes" myself. After it was finished, I decided it looked like some sort of fruit, a strawberry maybe, so I added the mint green stem. Which then led to putting mint green into the mitten and the booties. They were a big hit. Ooo's and aah's and "Did you make these?!" all around. As a newish knitter, that really felt good.
The white in the booties is just stuffing so they wouldn't collapse after wrapping them.
