There is nothing like a bit of crafting to get yourself impatient for your little one to arrive. About a week after finding out I was having a boy I headed off to the yarn shop and picked up a bit of cotton self striping yarn for a hat.
Each of my babies so far have come home in the same blue check outfit and a Mother made crochet/knit hat just for them. This little guy will be no different.
I even had just enough yarn with just enough stripe rounds left to make a pair of little booties (they seem more like socks) that actually match each other.
These are both crochet with just a simple half double crochet stitch. I’ll have a pattern for the hat sometime soon but the socks were just quickly made without taking any notes. For the hat I used one of my other kids newborn hats, that I knew fit well, as a guide and just tried to make the socks 3 inches long in the foot so it will fit on a little baby. Hopefully the ties will help to keep them on his feet.
I cant wait to meet the little guy who will wear these little items.
