Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat ~ a super easy free pattern that knitted up quickly. The little umbilical cord knot on the crown is adorable!
Then there's this little gem ~ Plain Cardigan ~ another free pattern! I finished the sweater and dug around and found a bit of purple and crocheted (!) every edge. I love how it turned out!
And finally, this last bit of sweetness ~ Autumn Leaves ~ and yup, it's a free pattern, also! I'm always amazed that designers are so generous with their creativity! I do try to support crafters that are trying to make a living sharing their talents with the rest of us, but there are some free patterns that are too cute to pass up!
I dug out some wooden beads I had pack-ratted away from a broken bracelet and decided to add them to this little sweater. I love this so much that I'm tempted to see if I can make an XXXL size for me!
I think that's it for the baby clothes...for now. Too many other things on the needles that got set aside that I need to get back to. But that's not it for small gifts from this knitwit! Remember Kelli's little houseguest? I think I may get to meet Miss Grace Anne this week and I have a surprise for her! Remember Zoe and Jo and Zoe's holiday sweater I made for her this past Christmas? Well, I heard that there's a new addition to the Peep family ~ Zoe and Jo have a new cousin named Merrida and Zoe is gifting her little red sweater to Merrida to take home with her and Grace when they leave.
I chose a new button that I thought Grace might like better than the one that was on it before. I hope Zoe and Jo and Merrida get to have a playdate before the visit is over! And I hope Kelli pops on and posts a picture of this little red haired cutie pie with the big blue eyes ;)
Sometimes the best things do come in the smallest of packages and I can't wait to wrap this all up and give it away. That's one of the best parts of knitting to me ~ giving it away! Hope everyone is having a great week! ~ Melissa
