Baby Gift

Here is another completed knitting project (finished this week!). Our cousin had a baby boy last month, and I wanted to make something useful, cute, and of course handmade!

I used knitpick's comfy yarn (cotton and acrylic blend) and it is *s0* incredibly soft. These little washcloths ended up being rectangular, but they are just the right size for washing a baby. I used a seed stitch border and Debbie Bliss' sailboat pattern from one of her sweaters for the blue and white one. The green ones are seed stitch also.

I may knit up more of these in different colors/themes for my etsy store, but it depends on how much time I can squeeze in for knitting. It seems like so many other things creep in - like laundry and dishes! UGH! ;)

Dang that life thing that gets in the way of our crafting, huh? LOL

Wow this is so amazing and thoughtful! I would love something like this! I would love to be able to make something like this but I'm lucky if I can knit a scarf! You are so crafty on so many levels and a wonderful person to boot!
