handspun addabootees and hat

so… we are having a small project knit along over in the due in april group on ravlery and these are my first finished knit. it took me a couple of bootees to figure out the sizing, but these are down sized Elizabeth Zimmermann addabootees, using size 4 needles with sportish weight yarn, but also made a bit shorter.

aren’t they so flipping adorable? i can’t get over them. on ravelry here.
a completely enjoyable knit. this new babe in my belly will only be wearing them for 2 months at most, but still. how could you not knit these? having only had a summer baby i really missed out on all the little little things, knitwise.

these are made from some handspun singles i’ve had lying around for a long while. i had enough handspun left to make a wee hat too (here on rav). and although i am notoriously not matchy matchy, i guess these might be okay since one is on his head and one is on his feet. now i’m thinking of tiny projects that i can make with other small amounts of handspun… and pondering making more pairs of bootees.

m’s new hat

brrr.  it’s cold outside!  and m didn’t have any hats that fit him, so i whipped this one up.  my handspun, mohair and targhee (i think), dyed for farm wool fiber club, back when that still existed.  i’m going to make a pattern out of this one in multiple gauges – dk to bulky, i think.  it’ll be a great hat pattern for handspun.
m's hat
i’m going to use the rest of this ball to make ben a hat.   i’ll offer an option for a non-pointy top… but here’s a better view of the pointy top.  ben’s will be a beanie.
