Then I made a (very ugly) hat for baby girl. I went to Michaels, bought some more yarn, and made another hat. It ended up way to big, and I'm still not sure what went wrong, but it was really cute! Maybe her head is smaller than the average six-month-old, I don't know. Maybe she'll grow into it....
Since then, I made several pairs of booties and slippers. Actually, I can't even say pairs, because most of the time, the first one didn't turn out so I didn't bother with the second. I bought some new yarn, a few more hooks, and was determined to make a pair of Mary Jane crochet slippers for my baby girl. This was the result:
Next, I made a hat for my little boy. (Buckeyes, again!) But somehow, he has ended up stretching it out to the point where it is wayyyy too big on him now. Any crocheters out there know what I did wrong and what I can do differently next time? He loved the hat. He was so sweet. He kept saying, "Thank you, Mommy for making this hat for me." My mom said he told everyone at church that Mommy made his hat.
Yes, the model is the absolute cutest, but the hat is pretty darn cute too! I think I found this pattern at http://www.acorntreecreations.com/ but now I can't find it to link to it. I hope she didn't take it down! I would love to make another one in the next size up!
