But the fun part about babies that aren't yours is you can hold them, spoil them as much as you like and then hand them back to their parents! The other fun part about babies is all the great baby knitting I can do in half the time it takes to make an adult size item.
Like these great baby sets I've done over the past month:
|For my cousin's baby who was born in January|
Sweater: "Sock" It to Me (for Girls) by Vicki K. Byram
Booties: Baby Janes by Valerie Johnson
Hat: Eyelet Baby Hat by Brigitte Lang
|Aren't these Baby Janes the cutest?|
|With this eyelet hat to match!|
|For my girlfriend's baby due next week.|
Sweater: Beautiful Baby Bamboo-Merino Sweater by Carol J. Sorsdahl
Booties: Baby's Wool-Tencel Booties by Lind Burt
Hat: Baby Squash Hat by Tamara Del Sonno
Currently, I'm working on the Garden Trellis Dress by Susan Boye for my nephew's baby due in May. I am using Berocco Weekend in Vanilla 5902. It is a soft comfortable machine washable blend of 25% Peruvian Cotton and 25% Acrylic that is great for both warm and cool weather.
|The feather & fan edge gives it a sweet look.|
another pair of Baby Janes by Valerie Johnson.
|I embellished them with crochet butterflies by Crocheted Sass|
|Can be found on e-Patternscentral|
|Will make the above hat, cardigan and booties set for my |
son's half sister who is due in June
P.S. I just finished the Garden Trellis Dress this evening:
|My little grandniece will be styling in her baby sundress!|
