Baby Set Complete!



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!

  1. My niece is due at the end of August and I think I want to learn to knit or crochet. Do you sell these? Please leave me a shout box message and refer to baby knits. Thanks.

  2. I too have become "hipknitized". I am just learning at age 50 and could just shake myself because my mother has been a knitter since she was a child and just think of all the beautiful things I could have knit...I am also knitting using the continental method.
    Last night I made one of your baby Ugg's. How did you make the fake stitching line and what type of yarn did you use? Thanks!
