Bub stuff

More baby stuff! I'm done now mom yelled at me because she doesn't think the baby will need any more handknits. Um, seriously? Babies get changed like 10 times a day, so I think we're still short a few...

Debbie Bliss Ruffle Edge Cardigan sans Ruffled Edges. I couldn't find any ruffles that were small enough to put on this sweater, and it doesn't really need them anyway. It does need buttons though, which I will put on...eventually. The color didn't come out well in this picture - it's a nice light green, but not mint.

Baby Drawstring Pants from Last Minute Knitted Gifts sans Drawstring. When I see how big the kiddo's waist will be when she's big enough to fit into these pants, I'll put in elastic and sew the waistband over. The legs have picot edging, which keeps sticking up. It's not cute when the pants are lying on the kitchen table, but would probably be cute on a baby.

Hat for neighbor baby. It's coral, but looks kind of orange in the picture. Perhaps I should stop taking pictures at night on my kitchen table.

I also finished the second Cable and Rib sock from Interweave, but neglected to take a picture of the pair. So, imagine two of these...

Now I started a lacy pattern from Sentational Knitted Socks in Fleece Artist (yummy!) and another Sitcom Chic in, you guessed it, KnitPicks Shine Worsted. I'm not sure how this will work, because the Shine tends to grow in a larger garment, so we'll see.

Those baby knits and socks look great! I made the DB sweater for my baby and I really loved it!!!!!!

I have Shine Worsted for a Sitcom sweater, too! I bought it (in black) last summer thinking I would knit it up during a really cold spell of weather. Somehow I blinked and missed that! We could do a knit-along, but I would have had to have started back when I got the yarn to catch up with you, so keep us posted, will you?

In my own defense, I did not YELL at my knit-crazed daughter; I merely suggested that baby knitting should be reserved for Grandmothers :-) and BTW, second-babies'clothes are seldom changed 10 times a day!

Love all the FOs, Melanie, especially the sweater. I hope you'll share which buttons you picked for it. :-)

Hi there! I just wanted to make sure you're aware that your blog is in the queue for the Fiber Arts Bloggers ring, because you don't have any code up. I just sent you the code again--please let me know if you don't get it? I'd love to get you back in the ring. :)
