Baby Layette

Thank you so much everyone for your well wishes on my new art school that I posted about in my last post!  It means so much to me.  Everyone I know virtually and really have been so supportive, and ready with a kind word when I feel down or feel like I'm not going to be able to this whole thing fly, that it warms my heart and keeps me going.  So thanks so much!

Onto other things...I haven't been able to create a whole lot lately but the kids have a new little baby cousin coming soon and I just had to make something!!  I love cute baby clothes!
 This sweater was so easy to make up!!  Front and back are basically the same, sleeves are the same, put it together, sc around the neck edge and TADA!  A wee little baby sweater is born.
 These pants were a little more tricky, but I powered through and completed them.  I hope they fit.
 The hat a booties really just crocheted themselves!  They went so quickly!  I love this newborn baby hat pattern and I think I will be making more of these in the future - an hour of time from the start to the finish and it was done.  Aren't those baby booties just the cutest?!
This is the whole layette all together.  It's called:  Mint Green Newborn Set and is available for free on Ravelry here.  I can tell you that the pattern is well written and super easy to follow.  The texture created from the combination of crocheting into the front loop and the back loop is really interesting and very pretty.
