When my youngest daughter told me she was pregnant all I could think about was knitting! I know – so weird. I have not knit in so long and I COULD. NOT. WAIT. to see what sweaters and blankets could be created.
Since we did not know the sex of the baby at first, I started with generic blankets.
The blanket above had self striping yarn…meaning that the colors flowed from one to the other without me having to change the yarn colors.
This blanket was knitted. Since I didn't know the sex of the baby I added a light green crocheted border.
This blanket was crocheted. I realized that my crocheting days are over after making this one. When I crochet I hold the item close to my crochet hook with my thumb and pointer finger of my left hand. My thumb then just aches…guess the old age arthritis is setting in.
I knitted a few ‘lovies' too.
This little guy can't be any taller than 8″. The dress comes off :). I put a pink bow on the ear when I found out they were having a girl!
I had some fun pink/green/white yarn in my stash and knitted this cutie little guy. If you look close you can see the face that I embroidered.
Knitting baby sweaters
My daughter, Nicole, is not a fan of pink pink. Subtle is ok with her. I had patterns from years ago and I found the yarn online.
