Knitting for a Baby


As the weather turns cooler, I've picked up my knitting again.  My friend had a sweet baby a few weeks ago, which coincided perfectly with the itch to knit again!  I made another pixie hat, this time in 0-6ish months size.  There are a few things I would change next time I make this size, but overall, it turned out adorably.

I had half a skein of yarn left after making the hat, so I tried to make baby booties.  After two failures with that, I then attempted leggings but quickly abandoned that too.  So then I decided to make something that didn't require a same-size pair.  I made a little owl.  It is far from perfect, but still pretty cute.

To get a size estimate, since I don't have a real live baby of my own, I had to try it on David, my new-born-size porcelain doll that I've had since I was 12 years old.  Most of the time he lives on the top shelf of my closet in a cardboard fruit box.  Eventually he will go live in my daughter's room.

It looks so much better on the real live baby.  C is so adorable!
