My prize for the challenge came in the mail this morning! See pictures on page 3! Cheesy


Rainbow Booties & Bonnet For Baby

UPDATE: Pics of the bonnet in solid white with flowers on page 2.

This is my first time entering a challenge!! W00t! Of course I have no delusions of winning but I've really been wanting to make some patterns of my own and this seemed like a good source of inspiration.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
I had intended on making a full set, perhaps with mittens or a little vest, but I ran out of my rainbow thread and more just isn't in the budget right now. I'm fairly happy with them as is though and maybe in the future I'll try to have more thread on hand. *shrug*
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Both the little bonnet and booties are my own design. They should both fit around 0-3 month old babies however the booties run a teencie bit small however they are stretchy and larger than some bootie patterns I've made from other people's patterns. The booties were my very first pattern to make EVER, very exciting. Of course the bonnet was my second ever pattern to make; however, in all fairness, I haven't typed up the bonnet pattern from my notes yet but will do. (I may be asking for help in testing both patterns in the near future.)
I used a shell stitch and v-stitch design and made sure to use a fun variegated thread to show off the pattern. (I could have, alternatively used alternating colors for the same reason but who doesn't love rainbows I ask you?) I did a much taller eyelet round for both the hat and booties than is recommended in most patterns I have. Just (dc, ch1) isn't quite high enough for 1/4 ribbon.. and I like the tr v-stitch look to.. just to be different. The hat is made with the same shell and v-stitch design through out. The booties I did with a slightly narrowed heel for a better fit and I opted NOT to use my usual flowers, etc being the colorful thread seemed enough. Oh and, of course, this is size 10 thread throughout...
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .
Okay on with the pictures and.. sorry for the rambling.. (I'm just really excited)..






Can't wait to see the other entries!!!  Grin

Aw.. sweet! Thanks!  Grin

Ya know I have to admit.. I'm really tempted to make the hat for myself; unfortunately, I have a MASSIVE head. I think my head is something like 26" when the average woman's head is 19" or so. Anywho.. yeah.. I'd like to but dang.. I don't know if I'd have enough yarn let alone thread.. lol  Cheesy

Cool beans.. thanks for all the sweet comments! Cheesy

Congratulations!! That's wonderful! Pff.. lucky.. *slug* lol Mike and I have wanted one for years now alas.. no little ones.. just the furry kind.

As far as the patterns..
The booties are the first thing I've try to put down into a pattern so it probably needs a little help. I don't have the other pattern typed up yet but as soon as I get that down too I'll post in the 'Discussions and Questions' section for testers, I THINK that's where that kind of thing goes. I thought I should probably wait until the contest is over.. though I honestly don't think anyone would use either FOR the contest still it gives me time to do the bonnet pattern. (Right now I'm being lazy though... whoohoo.. lazy weekends. *yawn*) Smiley
I am sort of kicking myself though for not making them more lazy.. and not having enough thread to start off with to make more. A little vest or something would have been super cute. Oh well..

Anywho.. man I'm glad I got a positive response but its still very early in the challenge. I bet there'll be some amazing entries yet to come.. I can't wait! Grin

These are adorable - the gauge works out really nicely so that each shell is a different color in the variegated thread. It shows the pattern quite nicely. The ribbons are a cute touch, too! Well done!
