Babies on Board

There are several babies who are due to arrive in the next few months (indeed one has arrived)  and their mothers are special to me and so the baby knitting has commenced!   Here is what I have been up to:


Buying baby/children's patterns at Stitches West a few weeks ago.  This is Saffron Baby from
Elena Nodel and is sized from Newborn to 12 months.  I'm shooting for the 6 month size for one little girl in particular.   I also bought Hannah Fettig's mini Water's Edge which is sized from 6 months to 14 years:


I have also been knitting baby hats and this one has been sent off to the little girl born in Philadelphia where they are setting all kinds of records for cold weather.


For those wondering why  I knit a blue hat for a baby girl, this is actually a pale lilac my camera stubbornly refused to duplicate.  This is a free pattern from Knitting on the Net called Mock Cable Baby Hat and  is so easy to do.  The slipped stitches make the cables and eliminate the need for a cable needle.

This is also a fast knit called Tegan, designed by Julie Taylor and is a free pattern on Ravelry.  Just knit in the round, decrease as you reach the top and add about 12 rows of stockinette to make a top knot.  


This last hat is called Everyone's Hat by Monica Sirna because it's sized for infants to adults.


Have a great weekend everybody and check out what other's are knitting over at Tami's blog

  1. Love all the baby knitting, queueing up that Saffron pattern!! Finishing up a baby sweater today myself, and then more baby knitting to go. Now, if my nieces would stop tandem baby making/having I would get ahead!
