Baby Time!

My Mums beautician is pregnant. We love her to pieces, shes been with the company pretty much since it opened, so we are all really happy for her. I decided to test my knitting skills with something for the baby.

The first thing I made was a baby blanket. I used Rico Pom Pom wool in lemon, as Ness doesn't want to know the sex of the baby. It was a delight to knit, even if it is a bit heavy. Nice and warm though.

I also decided to make an actual garment. I went with socks, as I got a baby crafting magazine that had the cutest pattern ever in. I changed it slightly to just using white and lemon. In the pattern it called for white, green and orange, but I didn't feel that these were neautral enough. Took me about 3 hours to do. It sounds a lot, but it was the first time I had a) Knitted socks, baby or otherwise, and b) Slipped and wrapped stitches.

I can't wait to make more, they're so damned cute!
