Babies and Bonnets

Hello dear friends.  We are getting some glorious rain here today, and the temps are in the 80's.  For only one day away from August, thats pretty awesome for my neck of the woods. All the plant life is still green and beautiful as well, compared to other summers when by this time everything has dried up and turned a dull brown.  Well, since I posted on hats yesterday, I thought I would show you the new bonnet I crocheted for our newest family member,  sweet Audrey Alexandra ,whom is due to arrive in September.  Remember the other bonnet I made recently and wasn't to happy with? It's the one on the smallest doll in my header picture at the top .

While it turned out really cute, it just wasn't soft enough for a newborn in my opinion.  So I purchased some really soft yarn and set to crocheting another, only this time using a different pattern.  I love how it turned out , and can't wait to see it on our precious Audrey.

So what do you think?  Nothing sweeter than a baby in a bonnet, thats what I think!   Blessings my friends

Oh Shelley...that is just precious :0) I really like it. It can be made in so many colors and different weight of yarn.

Cute as can be! I have a new Great-Niece and I've been thinking about making some winter bonnets for her. I bet you could line yours and it would be so warm!

I am trying to remember to get the little things for your dollhouse, in the mail.

Grace & Peace.
