Baby Blanket and Booties

Last night I finished the baby blanket I was making for my friend, and with the left over yarn (which I have much more of than I thought), I decided to try to make a pair of booties.  After a few trial and errors due to the differences between the types of yarn in the US and Australia, I found a combination that worked – for a pattern that called for 4ply baby yarn and a 4.5mm hook, I used 8ply yarn and a 5.5mm hook.  I think they came out at about the right size.  I don’t really know – I don’t spend enough time around babies to be sure, but I think they’re pretty close.

For the blanket, I pretty much just made a giant solid granny square, and then made up a “wavy” edge to finish it off.

For the booties I used this pattern that I found on Ravelry.  It’s easy and quick to work up, which is perfect for me!!

The pictures came out a little blurry – I took them late at night, maybe the light was wrong?  Oh well, either way, there are pictures and I’m VERY proud especially of my first ever pair of booties.
