Bumbo: Day 2

Warning: pictures may cause cavities.






















A few years ago, I tried out this pattern as a gift for a friend's baby. I modeled the hat on Drew, with one or two seconds of success. It was surprisingly quick and simple and, finding some yarn left over, I decided to attempt it again for Sadie. With matching boots, of course, so she can show her face in this town.

I ran out of yarn halfway through the hat and then found out it was discontinued. Typical. Ravelry to my rescue, once again!

Without further boring details, I bring you, Sadie, baby Uggs and Bumbo. All in one perfect storm of cuteness, if I say so myself!





































Now if I can just knit myself a pair of these things.

You make me laugh more, harder this time. A perfect storm of cuteness, indeed! Couldn't have put it better myself, chief : )

That's the same hat/boot combo my mom made all of my kids about that age. My favorite! We called it the "cousin eddy" hat but you probably don't know what that is ;)

Thanks, all!

Heidi, I'm pretty sure your kids' hat was the inspiration for making my own. Didn't realize you had the boots too!
Going to google Cousin Eddy now.

So cute! I am jealous of your knitting abilities. How long have you been needle-crafting?
Had my own baby girl after two boys. Pretty fun. (:
