Rockin' Baby Stuff!

I absolutely love that with just one skein of Socks that Rock heavyweight you can get a fabulous baby set!

Rockin' Baby Set

I've been a bit behind on the baby knitting (that should read, the kid is already born!), but this was a quick weekend knit! And I loved it!

Rockin' Baby Sweater

Its the Child's Placket-Neck Pullover pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts but the free pattern is here (pdf). Definitely use this version as the book has errata.

Rockin' Baby Sweater

I liked the fold over collar a bit better than adding the buttons (and, well, I didn't have any buttons too!)

Rockin' Baby Hat

I had plenty of yarn leftover to make a seed stitch hat to match. Easy peasy! I'm pretty sure that the colorway I used is a Mill End of Lucy in the Sky.

Hope baby Gavin loves it!!

Oh, and I'm prewriting this and saving it to post Saturday (ensuring that the recipient is surprised!), when I should be enhancing my stash at the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival!! ETA: OOPS! I obviously don't know my dates....its Friday, so while this posted I was visiting Woolgirl!! Tomorrow STR! Woohoo!!

Happy Knitting!

All that cuteness out of one skein... what a bargin!!!!!

A. Dorable!

Now that I'm looking at Christmas gift knitting, I see more and more in that one skein book that I like. Maybe a purchase is in order. Or a trip to the library with a photocopier!

So, you're off to Oregon and I'm off to England today. Hope you have more fun than me :0( I totally want to see all that STR again. I think I'd appreciate it more now than I did at the beginning of this year.
