Knitting and crocheting content!

I have a couple pictures of what I'm working on right now. And I'm using the new Blogger image feature to insert them right in my post. Very nice feature.

This picture is a the ripple baby afghan I'm working on. I call it my "Lifesaver" afghan because the colors remind me of a pack of Lifesaver candies. The yarn is Caron's Simply Soft Brites.

This is a preemie hat and booties made from Patons Astra. It's for a 3-5 lb. baby. You can see from the ruler that the hat is about 4 inches high and the booties are about 2 inches high. The bootie is about 2 3/4" from heel to toe. So tiny! I still have to sew the seams on the second bootie. The next set of these that I make, I'm going to use double points for the hat. It has a seam down the back that I don't like.

I have the sleeves done on the pink/white preemie sweater and cast on for the body. I don't think the sleeves look like they have a Fair Isle pattern but it might be because there are so few stitches. I hope the body of the sweater looks a little more patterned. The yarn is really pretty though.

And that's my knitting and crocheting news for now.

Lots of lovelies! Brites come in the coolest colors. Can you share the patterns for the preemie booties and sweater? I like knitting for the little ones, too.

The pattern for the preemie hat, booties and sweater is from Patons Book #702 "Early Arrivals". Its a nice book because all the sweaters are in one piece either from the top or bottom.
