Baby Shower Gifts

Here they are! The projects I've been working on for the baby shower I attended on Saturday. The bibs are made from a random bib pattern that I picked up along the way.  I came up with the pocket idea based on some plastic ones Molly had. 

The hat, sweater, and booties were from a pattern that I got out of the Fall 2010 issue of Knit Simple.  I decided it was finally time to learn how to do a sweater. I think wool is mostly unnecessary here in Oklahoma, so I made it with mercerized cotton since it's soft and light.  I can't remember the brand name now and I seem to have lost the label, but I got it at SWAK.


  1. Hi Heather,

    I found you from Foxy's blog. I love this sweater. It's so adorable. I have discovered that I like knitting baby items because they knit up so quickly. Also, they are great to give as gifts. I am always looking for cute baby items to knit. Good work!

  2. Thanks, I agree! I actually decided it was time to knit my first sweater, and really it took no time at all!
