Little Boy Blue

So Adina had her baby this morning, so now is as good a time as any to post the cute little set I made for her baby boy. I gave her the set a few weeks ago, but never ended up posting it. The hat pattern came from the Stitch N' Bitch: The Happy Hooker Book (which is an ESSENTIAL for anyone learning to crochet. I highly reccomend it!). The Bootie Pattern is one I found through Ravelry. Turned out super cute!

On a side note, I have caught up on all of my Christmas presents! Well, at least the premeditated ones. After the Black Friday Sale at Micheal's, I decided to make a few more things. I already have gifts for those people though, so the deadlines are a bit more flexible. I am, however, looking to make a non-crochet item for myself to wear to bellydancing classes. Check out Franken-choli!

Zil Mufflers

So, Vicky got me turned on to Tribal Style Bellydance, and now I find myself wandering around the house playing my zils to practice. My teacher, Jennifer, suggested zil covers to silence them a bit so that I don't terrorize the cats and dogs (but its so much fun!). Of course, my response was, "I can make that!"

And so I did.

The pattern is one I must have found through Ravelry ages ago, and I bookmarked the website with tons of bellydance stuff for vicky.

And here's how it turned out:
