Knits for my Baby

During the last weeks of my pregnancy I completed a few gifts for baby Palma. However we refurnished a room for her, we just store there the baby clothes and gear, I wanted our daughter to sleep in our room at least for a year. I think co-sleeping is a biological need of a newborn. Our room is tiny, we had enough place just for her crib. I decorated the crib with a few handmade softies and knits. I will show you the softies in another post.
This time I haven't created own patterns, I found the patterns on Ravelry, except the blanket, which is a very simple knitting construction and doesn't really require any instruction.

So, let's see the queue. I have already showed you this little west. I followed the pattern of Yarn Madness and used the squirrel chart of Ekornsokkene by Pinneguri. Well, my daughter could wear it just once and I am afraid that was also the last time, since she will grow out before the weather turns off enough cold for this wool shirt.
I also made a little bunny. I was impressed by the designs of Little Cotton Rabits and have always wanted to make one. I am really satisfied with the result, I think this is the cutest knit I have ever made. The photographer used the bunny as a photo prop of Palma's newborn photo session. See the photo on my Ravelry project page. I hope this softie will be something she keeps as an adult too. 
We took home from the hospital wearing this simple knitted beanie I made for her. It came out so tiny, I was suprised how small is a newborn's head. Anyway, she have grown out very quickly.
My favourite of the baby things I completed is this little colorful blanket, which was my bedtime project for a long time and now it is in everyday use, I would like to knit more blankies for her.

  1. All items are just so sweet! She will treasure them always. Just be sure to use them often so she benefits from their coziness!

  2. Gorgeous baby knits for Palma. So many sweet things. I must try a little cotton rabbits pattern. I always see such great crochet patterns for toys but I don't crochet and haven't come across such good knitting patterns for toys.

  3. I adore that little vest! Such a sweet knit for a baby girl.
