I finished my first garment ever, and I think it turned out pretty good! I'm really proud of it! I made it with Bernat Softee Baby. There are more pictures and detail on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Azlynn/seamless-baby-kimono).

You did a great job! If you want to make more of them, you might see if the local hospital would like some.

That's a good idea, deb! When I'm done with the other projects I'm working on, I'm probably going to have quite the stash built up (I'm still new and don't have much of a stash yet), so I might just do that. Seeing this finished almost made DH and I want another baby. That didn't last long though when our 4-year-old was in the middle of throwing a temper tantrum in the midst of our conversation about that. LOL Other people will have to have the babies, and I'll just knit for them.
I think I'm going to try to knit a sweater or something for my 4-year-old next, though. That should be fun. My 14-year-old doesn't think they're cool, so no go there. ;)

That is so sweet. I wish I had a baby to knit for. I'm waiting for dd to get pregnant. I love knitting baby things...and crocheting baby things..and buying baby things. Guess I just love babies in general.

Absolute PERFECTION! You should be very proud of it!

I visited Ravelry...and downloaded the whole Shebang! I really like your version best of all! Wonderful! Now I gotta 'nother baby project on my list!
Thanks for sharing all the info with us! Really truly!

:aww: Awww shucks, now you're embarrassing me. LOL
Thank you, though, really.
I'm so addicted right now I'm trying to convince DH I need more yarn so I can make a sweater for my 4-year-old. So what if it's summer? LOL I did try to explain by the time I finish, he'll probably need it, but I need to use up my stash first (just small amounts, none matching, and nothing appropriate for a sweater). I'm dying to make This (http://www.bluegarter.org/wp-content/uploads/2008/01/Leif%E2%80%99s%20Twisted%20Tree%20Pullover.pdf) sweater for DS. It seems like the next logical step. I don't take baby steps. hehehe

I love that little baby kimono, very cute. You did a great job. I love looking at Ravelry and seeing peoples comments, you learn such a lot from that.
Hope you can convince DH that you need the yarn for DS sweater. show him the pattern, how could he possible object to your son wearing that great looking sweater. Thanks for posting the link. Have saved the pattern for the future.

Very cute! It looks so comfy and soft.

It looks wonderful. I love how perfect it looks and soft and inviting. I would love to wear one of those myself. :woohoo:

aww, how adorable is that.

The kimono is adorable, great job!:woohoo:
The sweater is really cute too. I think you're right it will probably take a little while to make and if you're in a mood to do it ya gotta go for it. Maybe you could use up some of your stash practicing the cable of the sweater. I know it wouldn't be exactly the same if it's not the same type of yarn but you could get the hang of it and just turn your little swatches into little pillows or hot pads. LOL

That looks great! Well done! :thumbsup:

That came out great! Looks like something I might like to do. My Niece is having twin girls on 7-23. Maybe I could make them for later on. I don't think I can get them done that quick.

This only took me 9 days to do, and I'm a really slow knitter. Plus, I work during the day and I can't knit until after my 4-year-old goes to bed because he loves my yarn too much (he comes by it honestly lol) and he grabs it and tries to hug it, so it gets all knotted up and twisted. So I only worked on this kimono for at most an hour or 2 per day for those 9 days. I bet you could have at least one done if not both by 7/23 if you have time and gumption to knit during the days. You could get one done and tell her there is another on the way soon :)
