I have finished the complete baby set. Hat, mitts, sweater, booties and tiny newborn shorties. As I have said before I used Lion Brand patterns to knit the hat, mitts, booties and sweater but for the shorties I have designed these myself.
I decided to go with something that would be perfect for Spring/Summer and could be used as a soaker as well. It took a few try's to get it just right but in the end I think it turned out well.
It's hard knitting for a newborn because they grow so quickly and are all different sizes when they are born, at least with knitting you get a little bit of stretch out of the yarn. I feel as though I have been working on this set for ages, I guess because of Easter and the nicer weather I didn't dedicate as much time as I would have had it been Winter.
I will be posting the "shorties" pattern this week if any of you want to give it a try!
Time to go outside and enjoy the rest of this beautiful day...it is my birthday after all...29 forever!
