I made these booties as part of a set.  They were almost too cute to give away.


It's hard to tell with the blurriness of the photos but the buttons are little white roses.

Here they are again with the crocheted "Sweet Pea Bonnet"

Those are super cute!  I have just crocheted my first thing (a baby hat) and am dying to expand (but only into super easy things).  People I know are pregnant with FOUR little baby girls (three moms), so I decided now was the time to learn to crochet and produce some cute little pink things.

Were the shoes difficult?  Is it a pattern you can share?
Thanks.

It's not that I don't want to swap, it's that I often don't have time.  But feel free to ask (especially if it's one that's not too time consuming).

The booties are a little tricky, if you're new to knitting they may be difficult, but super quick once you've got it down.  The pattern comes from Stitch n' Bitch Nation by Debbie Stoller.  The Bonnet is pretty easy as long as you know how to crochet a circle.  Here is a link to that pattern: http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/BabyChild/LT1588+Crochet+Sweet+Pea+Bonnet.htm

Thanks.  So far I've only knitted the little coin purse kind of thing from the klutz knitting book - so the booties may still be outside of my abilities Cheesy

The hat I made is a takeoff of the sock monkey hat in Debbie Stoller's Happy Hooker book - pretty simple I think (I easily frogged as much - or more - than I crocheted, but I got there eventually).

Karen I love that sock monkey hat,  I haven't gotten brave enough to tackle it myself.  You'll have to post pictures when you do finish it.

Elowen - I didn't do the sock monkey - just tha hat.  And I wouldn't be too intimidated if I were you - the hat part is really easy.  (It has to be, because it's the first thing I have made and I am very bad at this so far - I take out many, many, many rows in order to get a few finished.)  The monkey seemed a little intimidating to me, so I just made the hat in two different shades, with the ruffly brim.  Then I made a flower (from the Klutz learn to crochet book) and put it on.  It came out pretty good - good enough that I've made two more since them.  I will post pics as soon as I get it photo'd.
