here are a few things that i've finished for my cousin who is due to give birth in may...
the blanket was made with bernat baby lash. the turtle washcloths and the cuuuuuutttttteeeesssst baby hat ever were made with cottontots
the patterns that i used are as follows:

cable baby hat (i swear the pictures do this hat no justice, it is precious:) http://heyjulie.wordpress.com/2006/08/18/cabled-baby-hats/
here's everything together:
So, the gift was a success, a lot of people were really impressed by the hand-made gifts
They loved loved loved the turtle. They started passing everything around.
I added some booties to the basket. They are a pattern off of Bernat's website. These were the first booties that I have ever made. I could definitely learn a little more about seaming things together because there is an obvious seam there.
oh well, better luck next time with the seams, but again, ppl really liked them hopefully, if the baby wears them, they will stay on his little feet.
Here is the turtle, now with a face
Here is the basket, all together. I ended up using one of those basket bags, the clear plastic, and I tied it together with extra yarn from the projects, but there's no pic of that.
Here is my cousin with the basket, for good measure
