ahh, today is the first day of my vacation and although the weather is sunny, i felt like sharing a blogpost first. :) featuring the first baby knits of the year! (maybe there are more to come, i don't know. depends on our baby-making friends and family i guess ;))
for the first couple that was expecting a baby boy, i made an aviatrix hat and some booties. i used the brightest blue i could find (i really LOVE this colour) and finished with a white button. i really enjoyed knitting the aviatrix hat, it was a bit challenging (first time knitting short rows) and it turns out SO cute. the booties were knit using this pattern, but i made them with a p1,k1 ribbing to match the hat.
i also couldn't resist crocheting a tractor, perfect for boys, no?
it's not as perfect as i want it to be, but i think it's cute nonetheless.
and for a sweet baby girl i made the same set, but in grey.
to make it a bit more baby-like, i combined the grey with a soft yellow button.
(ooh boy, do i love that button!)
hmmm, i think baby things are my favorite things to make (next to socks, maybe!).
small items (which means: quick finish!), colourful, and so, so tiny and cute!
