I spent some time last week knitting up a couple of baby gifts. I don’t think the recipient reads this blog but, just in case, I’m not going to tell you who they are for. I will, however, show them to you. They’re just too adorable!
First up, socks:
The yarn is Socks That Rock lightweight, colorway Titania from the 2007 Rockin’ Sock Club. The pattern is Baby Cable Rib from Charlene Schurch’s Sensational Knitted Socks. I cast on 32 stitches on size 1 needles and they make a very nice baby sized sock.
Second up, a hat:
I just adore this little hat and it was as simple as can be. I cast on 80 stitches and just knit around and around and around until it was 3 inches. Then I decreased evenly and called it a day. I think it took less than 2 hours to knit. Talk about instant gratification!
I hope the mom-to-be is as happy with them as I am.
