Baby BonnetThe bonnet was finished in time and turned out wonderfully. Tristan was dedicated at church and looked absolutely charming. The minister asked if someone had made the bonnet and seemed a little surprised when I said that I did. Stefan says he thinks he expected me to say my grandmother had made it or something. I was worried it would be too small but it turned out to fit him well and there’s enough room (or stretch) for it to fit him for a while longer.

Of course there was an occasional person who thought he was a girl — as my sister said, Didn’t they notice it was blue? — and my brother asked me, Do boys where bonnets? but one woman told me she especially liked the bonnet. I apologized to Stefan in case he thought it was too girly and thanked him for indulging me. He said he thought Tristan looked adorable in it — I have such a good hubby.

So now on to the next project — a romper for a friend’s new baby and I can’t seem to get the right gauge. Also, when I stopped by the yarn store last week I picked up some yarn to make a sweater for Tristan’s birthday in the Fall. It has cables — I really am getting adventurous.

I’ll try to get some more photos of the bonnet up on my flickr soon. One more thing to note — the shoes, which you can’t really see in this photo, were my father’s when he was an infant. How sweet is that?
