Such exciting news: two of my work colleagues announced their wives are expecting their first babies! As a knitter this is great news and we can go through all those adorable little baby patterns that keep piling up in our pattern files.
Last time we had a crop of office babies I made the adorable duck socks from Knitty and a snuggly cap and matching booties.
Her dad says she loves these booties so much, and loved “paddling” with them. Awwww, adorable!
Here’s Jack, wearing the little cap I knit him from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders. Wish I had a picture of the booties, they were so cute, based upon an heirloom design from Victorian times I think.
He now weighs close to 30 pounds, what a huge little guy! Obviously the hat no longer fits him!
For this new round of office babies there again will be a baby girl and baby boy, and I already have an idea of what to make.
For the boy, I just spotted this photo this morning in the Summer Interweave Knits Magazine, the Spud & Chloë leaf blanket.
It is just so adorable, I am really excited to make this one up.
For the girl I have a beautiful baby kimono jacket pattern from Tess, a score picked up at Stitches West years ago. I have the yarn already too, in a lovely pink/apricot hue in Tess baby sock yarn, so adorably soft and girly.
The babies are due in early September so there is plenty of time to get cracking!
