With little ones on the mind, my projects have leaned more than usual into babywear.
There’s such satisfaction from making baby things; typically, they go together quickly… and they are so stinking cute!
There’s a great tutorial for these ties here. I still need to add the elastic for around the neck, but the four sizes range from 18 months to 4 years old. A friend suggested using the scraps from making these mini ties to create some mini bow ties. Yeah, that must be attempted. Soon.
And this sweater could accomodate a newborn boy or girl… although, before giving it to a girl, I may add some ruffles or flowers or something. The color is more of a deep merlot and less of, well, the color in the picture. I’m not mean enough to put a boy in a pinky-red.
It’s all crocheted, and I’m part of the way through a crocheted baby blanket, too. Two more friends just announced that they are pregnant… and I suspect a third will soon. I will be prepared! After these projects are wrapped up, a baby quilt is on the docket.
All this has a two-fold effect.
1. The waiting is easier.
2. My office is getting cleaned out.
Order, comfort… ahhhhhhh.
