1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First ever baby knits on: August 05, 2013 12:57:58 PM
A friend of mine has just had a little girl.  Unfortunately I'd managed to mix up her due date with someone else's.  I wanted to knit something for her, so I found this pattern on Ravelry that I thought would be quick.
They knit up pretty well, although I made a mistake on one of them so the 'join/seam' bit is in the wrong place.  But on the plus side I managed to do grafting in garter stitch, which I was pretty chuffed with.

I sent them off with the tops folded down as I think they looked cuter like that.

I've also just started a new job where I'm doing a year's maternity cover.  I had a month working with the lady I'm covering and she was really nice, so I thought I'd make a hat for the baby.  (My mum thought a summer baby might not need a hat, but we live in Scotland, so I'm sure the baby will get some use out of it).
I used this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/countless-baby-hat.  It turned out really nice and it was a good tv knit - easy pattern to get into the rhythm of.

Here it is laying flat.

And here it is on my hand.  Which doesn't actually show it off to good effect.

I think the first photo shows the yarn best, but it's much brighter than any of the photos show.  I had leftovers of the bright green and thought it was nicely gender-neutral.  It's Drops Baby Merino 4-ply in Vibrant Green.

Any comments/criticism would be very welcome.

The fish bracelets one is my favourite!  (I'm a girl...)  The spiderweb/dream catcher comes a close second.  They're all lovely, as are the pretty boxes.

This is amazing!  I love all your stuff an this is no exception.  The little 'starry night' on the wall is such a great touch.  Have clicked 'this rocks', since it does.

Oh, that is wonderful!  What a lovely gift.  I bet your co-worker loves it.  It'll be a good talking point if she gets the chance to chat to any locals as well.

Oh, thank you elowezil, I do like bright colours. Smiley

And TkRainy, you should totally give socks a go.  I did wind up paying about a fiver for my pattern, just to be sure it worked.  I did keep reading through it and getting intimidated because it sounded complicated, but once I gave those bits a go, they were actually much easier than I thought.  I'd totally recommend making socks, you feel so pleased when you discover you can do it.

These are cool.  Are they actual pine cones?

Wow, that's great.  Such a great replica of the original, I bet she loves it.  Well done!

Ace - an actual tea cosy!  Bet it keeps your tea nice and warm.  Looks like it's a really good fit for the pot.

P.S. Nice teapot Smiley

Thank you  Cheesy

You're totally right, first thing I did once I finished was find a pattern for toe up ones and some more yarn

Ooh, these are lovely, I really like them.  I especially like the bottom left one.

Good luck with your first craft show - I bet it's a great success!
