Yarn Along - Baby Knit

~some more cozy things for my little girl~

This bonnet, the Small Things Bonnet, threw me for a loop a couple of times, but overall I would say it was a very quick knit. I had it done in less than a day. I opted for the pixie style and it is absolutely adorable (I tried it on a teddy bear) :) with just the right amount of pointy-ness at the top.

These booties also knit up very quickly (that's the beauty of knitting teeny tiny things). I tried a few different bootie patterns and liked this one the best. I added little yarn bows to the front because my stitching skills are less than stellar and I needed something to camouflage this fact. :)

And finally these wee mittens. I cannot wait to see the wee hands that will go inside of them! I crocheted (yes, crocheted - I learned how to make a simple chain!) a string and attached them to the mittens so they won't get lost should they fall off the baby's hands. That string makes me smile because it reminds me of the kind of mittens I wore as a child back in the 70's.

I must admit, a lot of ice cream was eaten by yours truly during the 3 days it took to knit this set. That delicious looking yarn (Dream in Color Classy in the Petal Shower colorway) kept reminding me of Neapolitan flavored ice cream (you know, the strawberry/vanilla/chocolate mix). My sweet husband was wonderful about making me ice cream shakes every day. :)

I also have to admit that I have no book to share, making this post a poor entry for Ginny's weekly Yarn Along. What can I say... I had no time to read - I was too busy knitting and eating!!

Only 6 more weeks 'til baby comes!!

~Thank you for your comments!~

Cute baby knits! I am an impatient knitter so I like projects that work up quickly. I like the baby mitts, but they would not pass in the US-strings longer than 6 inches around baby are a no-no (strangulation hazard).

@kkerekes: LOL - yeah, the Bermuda police don't carry around measuring tapes. :)
