Of course the yarn is scarlet and gray - Buckeye colors! I realized halfway through the third hat that I had actually made the pattern incorrectly, which would explain a lot of the frustration I had in getting the hats to be the right length, but they are still cute anyway. The top of the hat has a cute little point, which Aaron is now old enough to not quite be sure if he likes!
I personally think it is adorable...but that is a mother's perspective for you! I want to try the pattern as written to see what it would be like, too!
I also have almost all of Andrew's crib items cut out and ready to sew. I found I am a little bit short on a few things so I have to order another half yard of a couple of fabrics...oh, well. That's what you get when you decide to make it "just a bit different" from the pattern! Hopefully, I'll get sewing on it soon, and when I do, I'll post pictures.
I also knit another bootie pattern with some awesome cream colored yarn that I love. I followed the pattern exactly as far as weight of yarn, size of needles, and everything, but the 3-6 month pattern would totally fit my three year old. Something isn't right about that! So now I have to find a new pattern that I like, because the yarn is too good to waste.
