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.
