Stylin' for Fall!

I've been obsessed with crocheting little odds and ends for Eli lately... especially hats and booties! The booties did not go so well. I finished the first one fairly easily ~ then of course you have to make a second one. Well, the second one took me 5 tries to get it right... and its still a little wonky. So yeah, I probably won't be making another pair! But man they are cute! Here's a link if you're interested in the pattern for the booties. (Probably not for the beginner crocheter...)

The hat was a combination of an earflap hat (without the ear flaps) and a brimmed hat. Again, a little wonky but it gives it character, I suppose.


Eli was cheesing his way through this 3 minute photo shoot thanks to Carla being there to get his attention! Thanks sister!

I just love your blog. I have been following it for a while. Loved all your baby bump photos and updates . . . But I have to tel you, your little guy is just so adorable. And I don't think the booties look wonky at all. I would whip up a few pairs for you craft show.
