I hope you don't mind but I feel the need to share some of little L's baby knits. I love knitting for babies as all the projects are just about instant gratification.
I have to add, if you are a knitter and have not joined Ravelry, please do! It is such a wonderful resource. You'll notice I usually link my knitting to my rav page. I tend to keep better notes there on how I knit my project. I would say that about 90% of my patterns come from there and almost all of them are free. Not to mention the fact that it helps me organize what I am working on and it's just fun to see what I have accomplished. I don't know what I would do without it! Now back to the baby knitting:
First up is something completely unnecessary but yet I had to knit; a toy for him (rav notes here). I used the rainbow teether pattern from Petite Purls. I made the rings shorter than the pattern said to so I could add more colors/rings. I only wish I knit them in I-Cord instead of the way the pattern was written to make them more polished looking. The girls were quite excited that I used the last bits of leftover yarn from their rainbow poncho and gnome hat, so now all three of them have something from the same yarn.
His aviatrix hat (rav notes here). I had been looking for an excuse to try this pattern and I finally had one. I made it to match some longies I knit for him. It's still a tiny bit big, as you can see, but he'll just keep growing into it.
For those first few days of long nails I knit these mini mittens (rav notes here). Unfortunately they were so mini that he never fit into them.
Thankfully, I also knit him bigger mittens (rav notes here) with a sweet snowflake design on them (he is my winter baby after all!). I still need to get some pictures of him in these.
Pebble vest (rav notes here) This was so very tiny. It fit him for a few weeks though. I already knit the next size up because I loved it so much on him.
Winter Blanket (rav notes here) You saw this in the last couple of posts as it is my favorite blanket to use, but I still had to mention it. I am so, so happy I did this bind off on a purl row, it allowed it to stay in the pattern quite nicely.
Ok, I think that's enough for now. Baby knits are so small and fast you can't help but knit quite a few of them. Round two coming soon!
