View Full Version : FO - baby layette

This is the first FO I've posted in forever!

My dh's daughter is having a baby this week (being induced tomorrow). So I made my first little layette (man, I am so bummed I wasn't a knitter when I was pregnant. I wish my boys had had little goodies like this.)

There are separate pics of each item on my blog (http://www.earthchicknits.blogspot.com/). This is a diagonal garter stitch blanket in Rowan Soft Baby (a super-soft wool blend), Children's Cotton Hat from LMKG, Child's Placket-Neck Sweater from LMKG, Picky Pants from Little Turtle Knits, and Dreambaby Booties from fabulousyarn.com, all in Bernat cottontots.

I haven't blocked the blanket yet, but otherwise it's ready to go (we'll go down and see the baby in 2 weeks). There are a couple of small wonky places in the sweater and pants, but otherwise I am crazy-happy with the set.

Gorgeous! Excellent work! She is going to be very happy with the layette and of course the baby will enjoy them too!

how cute! you know, I'm pregnant and I had all of these visions of the cute things this baby would have but it's too damn hot to knit! Maybe I"ll be more inspired in a few weeks when things cool off down here!

Good work--she'll love it!

What a lovely gift, and a lucky baby! It's great the way it all came out as though it was a set, even though the patterns came from different places.

Thanks everyone. You make me feel so good! :D

Labor has been going on all freakin' day and they finally took her in for a C-section about an hour ago after she didn't make any real progress for several hours.

Still waiting to hear something....
