Baby Booties & Earflap Cap

New project complete! My friend Angela is having a kid, and the shower's Sunday. Baby projects finish so quickly! The booties are from a pattern in Knitting Pretty by Kris Percival. The pattern wasn't nearly so bad as it looked at first, with its 30 steps. I used a free pattern from About.com for the hat - it's a baby helmet!*

* Note (1/12/04): After comparing the hat with the ones others gave at the baby shower, I realize that the hat pattern is waaaay too small for a regular newborn! It truly is a preemie pattern. Shouldn't be hard to alter it for a bigger head though - maybe just add a couple of extra inches worth of stitches and follow the gist of the pattern above.
