Baby Knits

Seems like a lot of people I know are expecting babies, or just recently had a baby. Ive been trying to do a little bit of knitting for certain select people and their new little ones. This project here is a snuggle sack. I can't remember who designed it, but I found it on Ravelry.

It has these cute little owls at the top! I think I'll embroider them some eyes....

I knit it in a worsted weight wool, but for the middle I double stranded a thin strand of handspun angora. It's SO soft and luxutrious feeling, I wish I could keep it!

And meet my model! :) The bear has no name, sorry, I just snatched him off my Aunt's bed and used him in liue of a real baby.

Also knit up thisl ittle sweater awhile ago. It's from Susan B. Andersons "Itty Bitty Baby" book.
Its a real quick sweater to whip up, just garter stitch squares.

The booty pattern is from "The Knitter's Bible". I only have one done so far, they whip up real quick as well.

Bear kindly agreed to model for the sweater, even though it was too big in the arms. I suggested we roll them up and he thought that a fine plan.
I do have other things to show you, but am pressed for time at the moment so it will have to wait.
This month I have not done a whole lot of knitting because I have been struggling with appendicitis for the last 2 1/2 weeks. It's been a long, frustrating haul, I'm praying I'll be completely well soon. It's hard to do much when laying on one's back on the couch!
Well, it's Thanksgiving Day here in the USA. To all my fellow Americans, have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving Day!!!
