Baby Projects!

Now that we've made our big Announcement, I can show you what I've been knitting for the last month. Baby projects go much faster than sweaters for teenage girls made out of sock yarn.
We use cloth diapers and I love wool soakers for over them. I planned to knit a sleep sack for Brenna and never got around to it. It ended up being warm enough when she was born that I probably wouldn't have gotten much use out of it anyway. With this baby due in February, it was the first baby knit on my list.
I had lots of extra yarn left over, so a hat needed to be made. The Aviatrix hat has been on my list for a long time, so I choose that pattern. I really love how this hat fits babies! It just looks so cute on and it keeps their ears warm while staying put nicely. All very important attributes for a hat to have.
Next I decided on socks to keep baby's feet warm. my babies tend to be pretty active, so the chances of kicking feet out the sleep sack are pretty high. I chose the Ribbed Far-Away Baby Socks because I figured the ribbing would help them stay on and fit longer. I gave up knitting socks a long time ago much to the dismay of several of my children because socks take SOOO long to knit. These little worsted weight baby socks are a whole different matter. They only took a couple of days to knit and that's with me not having a lot of knitting time right now.

I have another baby project that just needs buttons and one more project that is still on the needles, so you can see those another time.

  1. I'm chuckling at the irony that these items are all bigger than the baby at this point!
