I had a plan, one FO a day for a couple days. I kept putting it off and now am just putting it all in one post. Probably what i should have done from the beginning.
Pattern: Baby Cloths from KrisKnits
Needles: Size 3
Note: There are 8 motives in the pattern but i got tired of making them after 4. They did make a great travel project for Chicago though.
Pattern: Baby Bib o’ Love in the first Mason-Dixon Knitting book
Needles: Size 6
Notes: Added button by slipping it on a knit stitch with a crochet hook in the place i wanted it to be.
Pattern: Baby Mary Jane “Skimmers” by Sylvia Schuchardt
Hook: 3.5 mm
Notes: I still haven’t decided if i am giving these to them. I crocheted the second one a little tighter and you can tell when you look closely.
Yarn: For all of the patterns I used Lily Sugar n’ Cream.
I am happy with all of the projects. Even though they are the simplest, the bibs are my favorite. They feel soft and nubbly and if i was a baby i think i would want to squish my bib in my hands all the time. I really hope they like the things i made and use them. I enjoy making the stuff. I really wanted to do a blanket but i thought better of it. I need some people who i know would cherish a handknit to have babies. Then i could go wild with outfits and blankets and other cute things!!!
I have one more baby thing to finish that i started a couple days ago and then i will be all done. It should be done but hubby sidetracked me into making some slippers for him so i am going to finish those tomorrow. So more FO’s coming. Sooner this time, i really want to try and do better with my blogging.
