Baby Knitting

No, not for me!!!!

My cousin's expecting in January, so I thought I'd better get cracking with the baby knitting, since it is January already. OMG, I only just realised that the sprog's coming so soon. I've still got hats to make! Eeek!

Anyway, sudden realistions aside, this is what I've made so far:

Booties (pattern: Saartje's Bootees) I made these out of some leftover dk crepe type yarn I had in the stash. I made the button tag things a little longer than the pattern called for, cos they were too small casting on only 10 extra stitches, and I still need to actually put buttons on them, but I saw the pattern on Ravelry and thought they were cute, so I whipped them up (they knit really fast, which is good). I also used the leftover yarn to make mittens:

My own pattern, which will be coming up later. Yay!

I also made a jumper for the baby

using this pattern from the ever increasing pattern stash (I just can't resist those charity shops!)

It's a Sirdar Snuggly Baby Yarns pattern design no 3297 in case you're interested. I did keep the ball band this time - Wendy Peter Pan Mischief DK. It's really weird working from old patterns - the only decrease it tells you to do is a K2tog. I was reading it thinking "this should be a ssk!" but old patterns don't seem to use any fancy terms like that lol! (I just went ahead and did the ssk!)

Now to get to work on those hats!
