I went to visit my niece today and so here are a hundred pictures of her and me with one of the hats that I knit for her. (Pattern here.) Isn't she cute?

Here's Helena wearing said shrug.
This is the baby cardigan that I finished a few days after Suzy's baby was born. It's about a 6 month size, so she won't be able to wear it for a little while.
The pattern is from Allegra Wermuth.

This is a vest that I finished a few days after she was born. It was knit, so it took longer to make. I really liked it, it turned out really cute other than the rolling on the edges.
And here Sydney is wearing the candy corn hat ... Suz says they're going to dress her in her Auburn Tiger outfit for Halloween but with the candy corn hat instead of the tiger hood.

Sydney Lynn was born September 22, at 5:53 PM, 7 lbs 11 oz, 20 inches long by c-section.
We tried her Brunhilde hat on her and it was just too freakin' cute. Not that anything much could make her cuter. Frickin' adorable baby. And no, I'm not biased at all. Doesn't she look just like me??
BTW, no, I am NOT next.

But while she was false laboring, I labored to finish up some half done projects for the baby who apparently doesn't care about coming out to see what I've made her.
Finally sewed together all the pieces of the girl baby viking hat (which you can buy here)that I had finished making while I was on jury duty August 18th and 19th. It turned out super cute and Pikachu was thrilled to model it for me, as you can tell.
And a wormy hat, which I made months and months ago when Suzy first found out she was pregnant and promptly lost. I found it in my nightstand drawer. Who looks in their nightstand drawer? Obviously not me.

Yet another diaper cake in pink and more pink. Used size Newborn, 1 and 2 diapers.
An edged flannel blanket that I made up the pattern for which you can find here: http://yarncrazygirlpatterns.blogspot.com/2008/08/puffy-lace-edging.html The thread is hand dyed from Sara's Colorwave which I bought on E-bay.
And a fuzzy tri-corner hat knit from a Crystal Palace pattern http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/iceland_babyhat.html in Baby Bee Soft Illusion.

This dress I made with larger hooks and looser gauge so it wouldn't be so tiny like the other dresses I've made so far. I wanted it to be closer to a 12 month size so it could be worn for at least a year. It turned out 12 month size but I wasn't super happy about the way it looked, mostly because I was so used to how the smaller sizes looked. It still turned out cute though.
The debacle of a blanket which I had to knit since the yarn was way too freakin' fuzzy to crochet with and then it took for freakin' ever to cut the squares, sew them together, edge and put in the argyle stitching. And it still was funky shaped and uneven and the only good thing about it was it was freakin' warm, which is what Sam wanted for her freezing winter home in Cleveland.
I made a diaper cake too, but forgot to take a pic of it! =(
