  1. Knitting for baby


    The wonderful thing about knitting for baby is that the projects are quite short, or at least the simple ones I choose are, and so it’s a lot of instant gratification.

    The booties above were knitted years ago using a pattern my gran knew by heart. As soon as she found out that someone was expecting, she’d knit up a pair of these in no time, instant cute present. Back then, when we were trying to figure out the pattern with my mum, I asked her to show me how to knit a pair. Funny to think that now my baby will be wearing them.


    These are a couple of Umbilical Cord Hats from Debbie Stoller’s Stitch ‘N Bitch: The Knitter’s Handbook, ISBN 0761128182. They’re quick and easy to knit and I think they look cute.

    Since we’re not finding out what we’re having, I’m working on a few colours. As you can see, the pink and green ones are done. The white ones are on the needles and the blue one will soon follow.


    Of course, I am not the only one knitting for this baby. My mum quickly took out her needles and, being that she’s a fast knitter, baby scored a beautiful wolly blanket and a pair of little booties.

    I’m really enjoying knitting for baby and I can’t help myself. So what’s a girl to do? Well, you start a few projects, of course!

    on the needles

    I have a green pair of booties and a grey one that I’m knitting long distance with my mum (just like when we cross stitched Holly Hobbie). The white project on the circular needles is another hat.

    There you have it, our efforts so far in knitting for baby.
