FO Collection

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 26, 2012 by annatestadoro

I wanted to show you a collection of FO’s that I finished  over the last 3 years. The first lot is a set of a blanket, bonnet and booties. I’ve not blogged about these separately yet, but will do so over the next few weeks. This set was made for a friend from school who wanted to give it to a friend of hers. She picked the colours as she didn’t know whether it would be a boy or girl, as a matter of fact I’m still not sure :-). I do really like the colour combo and I think it can work for either boy or girl.

The second set was made for a good friends baby boy, who is actually not a baby anymore, he turns 2 in September. It’s a cardigan, trousers, hat, socks and booties. I’ve blogged about some of these before, but can’t remember exactly when. I made them over two years ago. I remember using up some of the yarn in my stash, hence the different colours, but I do really like them.

And the last set is a jumpsuit and booties that I made for an ex-colleague. She was giving this to a friend. I made the same jumpsuit for Luke, and really liked the pattern.

FO: Bonnet and Bootie Combo

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , , , , , , on June 1, 2012 by annatestadoro

I’ve been looking through my folders again and have found another bonnet and bootie combo that I made back in August 2010 for a friend of mine. He had a little girl in or around September or October that year. They just had another baby, but I didn’t knit for them then. Anyway, I’m just going to upload the pictures here, I don’t think they need any words.

Some More Booties

Here’s another pair of my booties that I knitted back in May 2010 for a good friend from school. He had a little boy (not so little anymore now) in September 2010.

There’s not much else I can really say about these, apart from the fact that I just love knitting them.

They’re always my go to knitting item for a gift.

FO: Blue Booties

My good friend Lucie, who I used to work with, ordered these booties a little while ago.

They are my tried and tested pattern, the only one I’ve written up so far, and I still love it like the day I came up with it.

As always, if you want to knit them either email me for the pattern, or check it out on Ravelry.

FO: Another Pair of Booties

I knitted this little pair up in a bigger size, 6-12 months for my best friends little boy Tom.

I was able to use some thicker yarn, which I had left over in my stash, and just added a couple of rows to make them longer. I don’t know exactly what yarn it was as it didn’t have a label anymore, but I think it might have been DROPS Merino.

I love the colour combination and I’m sure they look adorable on Tom. I do hope they keep his little toes and feet warm!

FO: Another Pair of Booties

I do hope you’re not getting bored of my booties yet, I’ve got another pair that I knitted back in September 2010. And there are more still to come, don’t worry! This is my bootie pattern that can be found on Ravelry. As I’ve already said a few times, I love knitting these booties (it probably has something to do with the fact that I’ve knitted hundreds and hundreds of them).

I made this pair for a friend from school, I had spoken to him in the summer about a reunion I was organising and he mentioned that he and his wife were expecting. He told me they were having a boy, hence the colour choice, and I really like the combination.

The white cuff finishes the booties off so nicely. I’ve not seen a picture of the baby wearing the booties and not sure if my friend liked them, but I’m sure he did.

FO: Hat and Bootie Combo

Posted in Baby, Knitting with tags , , , , , on January 5, 2012 by annatestadoro

Here’s a hat and bootie combo that I finished last year around October/November time, hang on, make that two years ago. It was for a journalist that I spoke to regularly about one of my clients in my day job (that’s PR, just in case I’ve never mentioned what I do). She was expecting a baby in or around December/January.

I decided to go with a very neutral brown as I didn’t know whether she was having a boy or girl, as a matter of fact, I still don’t know. I used some left over Drops Fabel that I had used for a jumper for Luke and it came out beautifully.

I think it’s rather a nice combo.
