Knitting all the small things

You know that light at the end of the tunnel I mentioned in my last post? Well, wouldn't you know it at the end of the tunnel was me being sick. ha! And can you believe I went to what I thought would be a quick doctor's appointment this week without my knitting? Four hours later I was seriously regretting not having it with me.

I lost my voice Friday, but at least it's an excuse to stay home this weekend and knit a few wee things for my baby niece that is due any day now.  Yesterday I was going to show you this picture....


But look at it now.....


A baby hat featuring part of my Rathmore pattern. I can't wait to make a larger one for Lil' Snowboarder. This knit up so quickly in the lovely Anzula For Better or Worsted. SO squishy!!  Oh, and they have just one week left of their indiegogo campaign! Go help them out if you can!

I'm on to the next wee little hat...


Won't it look perfect with these onesies I got for the baby?


These were from this great etsy shop!

My sister's friends and I threw her a baby shower last month. I can't believe the little magpie (we think that may be her blog nickname) will be here any day now. A few photos I wanted to share from the shower...


The banner was from this etsy shop. Would definitely recommend them!


The mommy and daddy to be!


My sister received quite a few lovely handmade items at the shower. I wasn't able to get pictures of them all, but look at this gorgeous blanket! Baby is going to have lots of snuggly blankets!


Another SF Giants Naylor Street hat and I even did a bit of embroidery too!


Go Irish!!


I can't wait to see the little pumpkin wearing this! Oh, by the way, this is Quince & Co. Lark and I just love it! Great stitch definition and so soft.


Hedwig for the baby's room....made by my sister-in-law. Love!


And I made her a Peekaboo Penelope (hope to have that pattern out next month!).  This one is made with a skein of Plucky Knitter Primo Sport. Love the red!




My sister had a great day and it was a wonderful shower! We are all so excited to meet this little bundle of joy!!


Happy Weekend!!

Oh wow, that must have been a fun baby shower! Look at all the lovely goodies for baby Megan! She is going to be one well-dressed chica.

Congratulations to the soon-to-be new parents!

Sounds like the baby shower was a fabulous time (and I immediately recognized Gryffindor's house colors, even before I saw the onsies). I'm sorry you're sick, though. We've all had the plague here, too...but it's just a cold. Still not any fun but at least that's all it is.

That was a fast 9 months! Well, for me anyways, LOL.

So many wonderful goodies to welcome baby Megan. I'm sure she'll be a very loved little girl :-)

So many great baby knits! And that Anzula yarn looks so luscious.

Fabulous knits!!! And that owl sweater is absolutely precious. Best wishes to the to-be ... hope your voice has returned. :)

Sorry you got sick, but knit time is knit time! Looks like a great baby shower. Megan will be spoiled with knitwear, yay!

I love the 'up to no good' vest, my son could use that. And the Peekaboo Penelope is great!
