Blankie, Booties and Beanie

Fini!!
I began it on May 26 and finished June 11. The pattern is from Filatura di Crosa Baby and I used some Hobby Lobby acrylic/nylon "baby Bee" called Sweet Delight with #6 needles. It took 2 3/4 skeins (about 850 yards) of yarn.

Here is a close up of the diamond pattern:

I had yarn left over, so here are some booties I did. The pattern was on about.com, I think it is just called lacy baby booties. I used #4 needles for these.


And then I thought, why not a beanie as well - I liked the pinwheel decreases so chose this pattern:

And the side view:


So here is the ensemble:

I think this will keep that little Indiana baby (due in October) warm.

I can't believe that you already completed a baby ensemble for a child who isn't going to be born until October! I am such a procrastinator. I can't imagine being that much on the ball. What a cute set. That is definitely one lucky baby.

You finished that up beautifully.. It's a lovely set, yarn and pattern. I agree, lucky baby!

Thanks for your comment on my "baby", too. He's resting after his ordeal at the vet's today.

What a lovely set, that is one lucky baby. The blanket pattern is really beautiful. Good job on finishing so early you are far better at time management than I am.
