Earflaps and Booties

I have finally finished a couple things for the babe that is to be here soon... and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out! The booties and hat are from the book, Knitting for Baby: 30 Heirloom Projects. I love this book, and have so many things I want to make, but narrowed it down to these for now! I chose this green, because it is one of my favorite colors, and pretty neutral for a baby, either boy or girl.

The swaddler is from the book, Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing for Baby. I got this book from the library, and LOVE it! Such simple projects that are easy to read and easy to put together. This turned out better than I thought, and I just love the little sea horse, and I finally practiced a little embroidery... love.

I also wanted to let you know that we changed our One Small Change Project to this link http://1smallchangeblog.blogspot.com/
when you get a chance, feel free to change the link you have on your blog as it is now going to a dead link (sorry for the extra work, but I think things are finally working out!)
Have a wonderful weekend!
