Baby Gifts....

I have been knitting up a storm lately for my nephew who will be born at the end of September. Here are a few of the gifts that I made for him. The links go to my Ravelry project pages... and you can find the free patterns there.

These Chucks were so fun to make. They were my first booties... and my first project with a color change in the middle of the row. They were not particularly difficult... in fact I'm sure I will be making more of these for expecting friends in the future. Some of the ladies at the shower put in requests for friends.
I made this ribbed baby hat to go with the Chucks... No hip baby should be without a black beanie and matching shoes! I know the doll modeling this hat is a bit creepy... but hey creepy is good!
Here is babies first tattoo. Since it is illegal to ink your little brat... I thought this classic tattoo design would be more appropriate done in yarn.

And here is a little sock monkey. I used the anything animal pattern... added a sock-monkey-esque mouth and wah-la!

I also threw in a couple of these easy to crochet wash cloths and a bib I made with a monkey on it (which I forgot to photograph).
My husband threw in a set of Thank you cards from our Etsy shop and we had a fun homemade gift for my brother, his lovely wife, and there soon to appear little boy.


  1. Those chucks rock!!!!!! Lovely stuff. I really wish I could knit. I'll definitely try to learn to knit some time soon...

  2. Thanks guys! They were so much fun to make. I will certainly be making more in the future. For all the ooos and ahhhs they got I felt like a knitting rock star!

  3. Those "booties" are so cool! My niece is expecting her first (it's a boy) about a week before Thanksgiving. I've been trying to find a pattern for booties, but everything seems geared for girls. Everything else is super, too. May just have to snag a couple of patterns from you! Thanks!!!
