angora baby set

Inspired by the angora booties in Last Minute Knitted gifts, I decided to pick up Louisa Harding's new angora yarn, Kimono Angora, to make a hat and booties for a friend of my mother's who is expecting. The colors in this yarn are so lovely and unique - it makes the baby set so much more interesting than the standard pink hat and booties. The booties are from the Fiber Trends pattern Ch-36 Baby Basics. (The best bootie pattern ever, in my opinion!) And the super sweet hat is the Children's Cotton Hat from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. (Note: Love the pattern, but there is an error in the middle and larger sizes. See my corrections here.) I think these just might be the most beautiful things I have ever knit!
