A loud noise at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other

More baby things!  Gifted to same baby as last week.

Aren't neutrals so fashionable right now?  Or was that last season?  Gosh darn it, fluros are in now aren't they?

Here we have more cotton.  But you know what, as much as cotton didn't really do it for me when crocheted, it is wonderful to knit with.  I didn't get sore wrists.  And the resulting fabric is luscious.  These items came out very soft and squishy.  Not particularly stretchy, but that could be due to lack of ribbing etc.  Who knows, not me certainly.  I'm very happy with these items, even though they are not without error.  They will probably not fit at the same time, but that look at those buttons.  aww.

Anyway, I think miss baby will be very fashionable in this set.




Ravelled here, here and here
Patterns:  Here we have Gnome Baby, Pebble (Henry's Manly Cobblestone-Inspired Baby Vest) and Mary Jane Booties
YarnBendigo Woollen Mills (duh) 8ply cotton in latte (I don't know whose latte is that colour, but I'd be sending it back if a beverage of this hue was served to me)
Needle:  3.5mm.  Half a size too big for the booties, so they aren't as structured as they probably should be.  Live and learn, those are the first booties I've ever knit.  AND..  **that vest is the first garment I have ever made** WHEEEEEEE!!!  Very pleased, however there were a billion ends to weave in.  Grosss.
