Baby Knits - warning there is a lot of cuteness in this post
I have been doing a lot of baby knitting. I have niece due late next month and I was commissioned for a few baby items.....and let's be honest, once you start knitting baby things it is really had to stop.
Last night I finished this braided ball (photo above) and then proceeded to play dodge ball with my husband. He thought is was a pretty cool baby toy. It squishes pretty easy and is super soft. I think I'm going to make a some more with other yarn leftovers. I was thinking it is a good toddler toy too because it can be thrown without hurting someone and it is easy for little hands to grab one of the single parts of the braid.
Okay, next baby item, well, items is a set that I think turned out super cute! This berry hat and baby legwarmies are knit from super yummy Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. I was knitting these before church one Sunday and all the moms were freaking out about how awesome baby legwarmers are so I hope to knit some more of these for babies on the way.
Lastly, the two cute things I made for my soon-to-arrive niece. First this Blankie... which I am in love with. I seriously could have just kept it for my own lap blanket, I hope it becomes my niece's favorite blankie. This photo doesn't really do the colors justice so go ahead and click on the above link to see some more photos.
I also couldn't help but knit this cardigan. When I saw the Maile pattern awhile back I faved it, but didn't know when I'd get a chance to knit it. I think it turned out really great and I can't wait to see what it looks like on a baby, haha. The photo isn't great, but if I get an on baby shot I'll be sure to re-post a photo.
So have I inspired you to knit some baby items?
