Lil Pink Kimono Sweater

I knit up this kimono sweater for Lil Hoot in case there were some chilly Spring mornings. However, we moved to Missouri so quickly and it was a rather hot June here so she had no need to wear it. Until last Sunday, when it was a very chilly July morning. To my surprise and delight it's actually still a bit big on her even though I knit it to the newborn size specifications. It looks as though she may still be able to wear it for awhile.

We tried out her other pair of baby booties this week too and, contrary to everything else, they're too small. Actually, they're just too short. Since she has her daddy's long, skinny feet and toes she's going to be needing longer socks, shoes, etc. Only problem about that is they tend to be too big around then, so I guess there will probably be a need for me to make her some more booties and soft-soled shoes for awhile!

I really didn't make too many things for her before she was born. She's slowly growing into the things I have made, so I'll post them from time to time. I'm still crafting here and there, sometimes because it's needed - like curtains for our kitchen - and sometimes just to take a little break from housework and baby raising - like a new fall sweater for Lil Hoot.
