More Knits to Come!

I brought my knitting bag with me on vacation, but never got a chance to pick up my needles...

Look for more baby sweaters next month.

Also, I'm finally going to tackle both crochet and double pointed needle sock knitting!

A Complete Baby Set!

I finally brought this set together. Of the three pregnancies I was knitting for, this is the last one; the other two have delivered, happy and healthy babies!

Some of these items are variations on patterns I've used before, and posted here: the hats and the hooded blanket. The other two blankets were knitted off the cuff, without following any pattern in terms of the colours. However, the striped one is knit in a pattern that I originally found in a book of afghan patterns. I took these photos just before I wrapped up the items:
