Baby Stuff

Here is the baby set I've been working on this summer. I think it all turned out really nice. The Bernat Satin was lovely to work with, so soft and smooth. It feels really good in your hands as you knit. This whole set is for Angie, who is due at the end of september. Her shower is today and I really hope she likes everything. Obviously I don't have baby bottles laying around my apartment, so I had to ask this nice water bottle to model the bottle cozy for me. I think its really cute, but I'll have to ask the couple of women I've given bottle cozies to if they ever use them. They knit up really fast, so its not a super huge deal.

The blanket didn't quite fit on my dining room table, so I kind of blocked it in sections. Mainly I just misted it and straightened edges and any uneven stitches. It ended up so pretty!

Here's the whole set before I made the bottle cozy. It gives a decent view of the booties and hat up against the blanket. You can see the while set below, but the blanket is mostly hidden. I think the pom-poms on the booties are fun, but because the pom-poms are more delicate, I put a handwash tag on those and machine wash gentle on everything else.

So there you have it, lots of baby goodness. Coming soon, pictures of the long awaited Vogue Knitting Skirt!!!!

I love your baby items. They are wonderful. I bet she loved them too.

I haven't worked with Bernat satin yet, but wow, I think it's next on my list when I have yarn money to spend.

The blanket is beautiful! Can you tell me what pattern you used?

So many people have asked what pattern I used that I am going to list it here in the comments. The blanket, bottle cozy, & hat all came from a set in Creative Knitting's May 2006 issue called "Shower Baby with Gifts" The booties are from a different creative kntting pattern, can't remember which issue off the top of my head, but they are called Rosette booties, I just put pompoms on instead of rosettes.
