I finished these over the past week. The hat is Woolywormhead's Baby Tri-peak hat, and the booties are Oh Baby!Baby booties. I have some comments about the pattern on one of my Flickr photos. I think the hat will be going to Baby Jack, along with the rest of the stuff I need to finish and mail to BC. I just really wanted to knit the booties after doing the hat, so I think I'm going to give those to my roommate's relative who will be having a baby in a few months. I think the purple/brown colors are pretty gender neutral, but correct me if I'm wrong.
I'm so pleased that I finally got better pooling knitting this yarn as a hat. I tried three or four times as a sock and I was not pleased. The stripes work. I hope Jack's bean isn't too big!
