Little Boy Blue

The baby shower travel on Sunday was as messy as the weatherman predicted. I forgot to take a picture of the gift basket but I did remember to get some pics of a few of the basket goodies that I finished for grandbaby #2. We know this one is a boy so crochet baby converse sneakers in the new dad's favorite team colors were a must. Pittsburgh all the way!A warm snuggy or cocoon (whatever name they use nowadays). I had a heck of a time finding a nice button and finally settled on a plain black one. One skein of Lion Brand thick and quick lived up to it's name, thick AND quick.I saw a few of these car booties on Ravelry but couldn't find a pattern so I made my own. They were a big hit at the shower and I'm sure take him places ;).

No baby is complete without a classic sweater set. Sirdar DK yarn in a nice speckled blue added just the right amount of color to keep this knitter interested and yet offer a classic set.

The fish hat was for fun. I got a kick knitting this and presenting it. The new mom-to-be seemed to be thrilled and gave a warm and heartfelt thanks for the handmade goodies. I also made a toy and another fun hat but since blogger doesn't allow more than 5 pictures per post I'll add it in the next one.

The trip was wet and dreary and what should've been a 2 hour ride home dragged into 2 hours and 45 minutes. Now the countdown begins until grandbaby #2 decides it's time to meet everyone.

What absolutely awesome gifts! My faces are the car shoes and the fish hat. :D I can't believe you did those car shoes without a pattern! I'd never be able to do that.
