I love to knit for babies! You can knit so many different cute things and they don’t complain about the colors, style, and/or pattern! I try to knit a few baby things to keep on hand for when I am asked to attend baby showers, as baby gifts, etc.
Yesterday, I attended a baby shower for my friend, Shea, and while I did not get a chance to take a picture, her gift was the ever-popular Baby Surprise Jacket. After the gift-opening time, several of the ladies rushed forward to get a glimpse of the jacket and asked me about the pattern. As of today, there are 15,311 Baby Surprise projects on Ravelry. Wouldn’t surprise me if there were a few more after this shower. It’s really a fun and easy knit!
I also enjoy knitting Kids’ Fruit Caps by Ann Norling. I have knitted quite a few of these and they are great gifts! One year, for the fall, I knitted Pumpkin Hats for all of the babies in my Sunday School Class!
I have even knitted a few baby blankets, but most of them were ‘way before Ravelry and so I don’t have pictures. But, I did start a new circular baby blanket yesterday after the shower. It’s more of a Christening Blanket/Shawl. I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Since it’s 100% Merino Wool, it should block beautifully!
I probably will start some more fruit caps, as well. I have plenty of yarn in my stash!
