For Ada

Last week my boss became a Grandma for the first time.

I love crocheting, and for the first time in a long time I love my job, so it's really nice to be able to crochet a baby gift to give to my boss for her new granddaughter.

I used my Edgerydoo to make a fleece blanket made from the cutest bathing duckie fabric. Then I made a little dress with matching hat and booties.

The dress was made from Marilyn's Bubble Suit / Preemie Dress pattern. I added 8 stitches to my starting chain and used a G hook to make this sized for a newborn instead of a preemie. The booties were made from Annie's Attic Fancy Footwear pattern. I modified the sock part to be shorter, and had to play with the sole stitch count, I think there might be a mistake in the pattern. These are cute and easy booties though, and I like the pattern. If you use it, you may need to look at the stitch count for the soles and make sure the two sides match. The hat I just made up as I went.

I think this is a cute set, and I hope Little Ada can use it!
