The "A" Babies are Coming.

One arrived on the weekend. Little Ayla, for whom I knit the apple green blanket, is here safe and sound. I will hopefully get a chance to go and meet her next week. In the meantime, I made a couple of other little things to go with the blankie, since I couldn't find more wool to knit the little cardi I showed a few weeks ago.

What a cute little hat, isn't it?
 This hat was a free pattern on Ravelry, called "Berry Baby Hat".
And I love these little creatures.
And these little "Bunny Nuggets" were also a free pattern that I found through Ravelry as well. I think I giggled the whole time I was making these. And they didn't take long.

The next baby to arrive will be Abby, due next month. She is the one for whom I have been knitting the second zig zag blanket. It is now finished and just needs the ends tidied up.


There might just have to be a couple of "Bunny Nuggets" to go with this blankie too. There's certainly a rainbow of possibilities.

I love knitting for babies! It's fast. It's joyful. And there is absolutely no happier occasion for knitting. I am reluctant to do sweaters any more, since they outgrow them in about 15 minutes. So blankies and softies are definitely my preferred way to go.
