Helllloooooo Bay-bee, oooo

I can finally share the rest of the baby knits I worked on now that everything has been gifted.

First up, an Upside Down Daisy Hat for my friend, Stef who is due any day now.

Specs:
Pattern: Upside Down Daisy Hat by Susan B. Anderson from Itty Bitty Hats
Yarn: Knit Picks Swish DK in Petal, Pale Lemon & Asparagus
Needles: Addis Turbo US Size 6 16" circulars
Mods: The pattern suggested using a lighter weight yarn for the petals, but since I had this yarn in my stash, I just went with it. Because of this, I needed only 4 petals on top of that hat instead of the recommended 5 or 6.

Up next:



Yup, more Saartje's Booties. I seriously LOVE this pattern and think it makes the perfect baby gift! One of these went to a charity auction for a friend's son's school and the other was gifted to
the sweet new mama, Miss MaryMo.

Specs:
Pattern: Saartje's Booties by Saartje de Bruijn
Yarn: Yarntini Sport Weight in Pomtini
Needles: US 3 Clover
Mods: None

Last, but not least, a hat for Mary to go with the booties.

Specs:
Pattern: Bunny Tail Hat by Susan B. Anderson from Itty Bitty Hats (links above)
Yarn: Yarntini Sport in Pomtini
Needles: Knit Picks Circular US size 4 16"
Mods: None. Super quick and sweet pattern. I would totally knit this again!

In the spirit of babies, my blogless friend, Jess and I had a baby shower for our friend, Stef and I made, what else, cupcakes! This recipe was just too awesome not to share with you. Of course, these are 100% vegan and they were soooooooo good. Seriously one of the most delish recipes I have ever made! Recipe here.



Up next: Christmas gifts 08 and finished Embossed Leaves! Have an awesome rest of the weekend.

You are so stinking amazing. The booties went so fast at the auction! Thank you.

Now I have to ask you for a hat to match. I'd like to buy it for business. So many of the parents of small children (9mo-12 mo) are looking for cool hats like this.
