Baby Wear Some Knits

It is supposed to be a knitblog, after all.

But it is shockingly difficult to get a picture of Willow that captures her cuteness adequately, and when you throw in trying to get a picture of her in an item of clothing and try to capture that adequately, well, you'd best make peace with your lack of success.

Still, here are some attempts:

Confection Baby Shrug by Tonya Wagner, in lovely rhubarb-colored handspun.  Unfortunately, Willow really liked chewing on this sweater, and I happen to know woolmouth isn't that pleasant...

She also hates wearing this, but I make her because damn, it's cute:

The picture doesn't even begin to capture it, I swear.  It's Children's Cotton Hat by Kim Hamlin from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, knit in Rowan Calmer, and it looks angelic and fits perfectly.

These were both knits I threw together and mostly forgot about, certainly didn't bother blogging about, but Dave pulled them out and put them on her, and they made me squeal--my baby!  In my knitting!

What a pretty baby! Congratulations!
Just wait until the baby is about 4 or 5 months old - she will KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF with her cuteness. It only gets better!

Aw man, she gets cuter every time.
