Update: the shower is past and the baby is here — look at this little one.

I've been going through online knitting patterns for babies for a bunch of baby showers this year. This it the third post. The first one is here and the second one is here.

This is the pickles small & clever bonnet pattern again. There was only one tricky part which is increasing at the beginning without making a hole. I found this trick which avoids the hole. (Also, I did two extra rows on each side so that I had 47 stitches at the widest point — according to the babies around me, this seems to fit about right.)

The boots are oh baby! baby booties which I fell in love with when I saw this float past me on pinterest. It was a pretty good pattern. You could probably stripe the cuff or use up lots of scraps and it would be pretty. 

I used Alchemy Temple (yellow) and Debbie Bliss merino, bith dk for these.
