So, I've decided to start knitting baby clothes to sell on etsy. I've been knitting mittens to give away as Christmas presents, but after the third pair, I'm ready to do something else. I've been searching around for good patterns for diaper covers and pants, but everything seems to be straight knitting, and I want a challenge.
I've never knit on circulars before, so I'd kind of like to find something that I can do with those. A friend of mine just made a pair of soakers, and the pattern was awesome, I may or may not snag it from her. Muahaha
Here are some things I have previously made. :)
Wavy Baby Blanket:
I got this pattern free off of ravelry.com (crochet), and made this blanket for my friend and gave it to her at her baby shower. I'm really happy with how it turned out, though I forgot to take a pic of the final product (doh!)
I made these baby booties, this is the first attempt. I also made a pair out of the same material as the blanket above, and they were really neat looking. Gave them to the same friend since it matched the blanky. :)
Crochet squares blanket:
This was intended to be a much larger blanket, but when I got to the end of the pattern, I decided to stop there, so now it's just a throw. I'm currently making a king size blanket in a different pattern, it should be done..... oh... some 100 years from now. ;)
These are the mittens! I just learned how to knit with double pointed needles, so I think they turned out awesome considering. I also have another color to make in red. I used 100% Canadian Wool for these, they are warm and toasty. I may have to knit another pair to put in my own stocking!!
