Sock...what do i want a sock for??
I have freed myself from the evil baby socks for awhile. Below is my non-sock (but still baby) adventures.
My friend in Qld is having her 5th baby due January (but she is hoping to induce in Dec). I am pretty sure she will love this baby version of the Lil Devil Hat (modified by me)
I started this yearterday and finished it up today. I love quick knits. And doesnt Pooh Bear look nice and evil?
Nieks baby now has a jumper (below) to go with the beanie (few posts ago). Hand dyed by me before knitting. I love it. So does a friend of mine in New Zealand whos baby is due in April (so I am now torn on whether to give it to Niek or save it for Grants baby). My standard knitted a billion times for peoples babies modified raglan jumper. I love this pattern (I did this for Baby J in stripes). Also included a close up of the colours.
Lastly to show you. Below is the Christmas Pressie for Baby J. I mailed off the parcel mid week to Switzerland. I cant wait for Syb to get it. I hope she loves everything. I forgot to take a pic of the very Aussie gift I included in the parcel for her. My girls have named the bunny "Gangsta Bunny" cos he looks like he belongs in a gang.
I am still working my way through things for babies born this year and chrissie pressies. I dont know how many I am going to get done, and really I dont think I will care..LOL. I guess when the time comes we will just see who of the small people are left to buy for.
There are more hand dyed wool up on my Etsy including some 8ply (DK/Sports weight)..Go look, I know you want to..I will wait.............DONE? ok lets keep going.
I have sold my first hand knitted item on etsy too. One of my chunky beanies. All the other knits I hope to get up there seem to slowly be handed out to peoples babies. Though I still have my hippy baby pants to list.
Weather here has been pretty warm, damn I hate hot weather. Also hate voting and thank goodness that is done for a while longer now.
Ok thats it for me for now. I have dinner to cook and biscuits to make!
Happy knitting all!
