This project has been a WIP for a wee while, but I finally got around to buying some teeny tiny buttons to finish them off.
I used a free pattern from Shes Crafty and then added some crochet flowers made with the 100-flower scarf pattern here. The yarn is some brand new baby wool I picked up for a song at our local op-shop. All up I probably spent less than $2 on materials for these but I think they look pretty special.
This was my first time knitting 4ply wool and I discovered it takes a long time to produce much of anything when you are knitting on small needles with fine yarn - I'm usually a DK girl. I knitted these hoping to give them to some friends who had a baby last week, but they had a boy and I'm not sure they'd appreciate pink and white knitted cuteness! I'm hoping my friend who is due in early March is having a girl, otherwise these will have to be added to the gift box. I'm at the age where friends are having babies all the time so they will eventually go to a good home.
