Blame it on the Rain

14 Feb

Once I finished Baby’s Adoraboots I discovered it was physically impossible not to also make him a rain hat.  Because honestly.  What newborn doesn’t need rain gear?

I again used the green & gold hand-dyed yarn from Gnomespun (which is almost gone now… sad).  Look how disgustingly cute this hat is!

Gangsta Mowse can haz rain gearz.

 

Husband tried on the hat but refused to let me take a picture of him (it’s like he knew it would end up on the interwebs), so you’ll have to settle for Gangsta Mowse’s modeling skillz, yo.

 

This is some full-on, in your face CUTE, people.  I can’t wait for baby to be born so he can try this stuff on!

 

The pattern I found was for a one-sized “child’s” hat, but I messed with the yarn size and gauge until I got it to be baby-sized.  I’m going to work one up with my new favorite (cotton/hemp blend) yarn & see how it turns out.  Hopefully you’ll be seeing this awesome hat as one of my new Etsy listings soon!  And in the meanwhile, D’awwwwww… aren’t tiny things cute?

Adoraboots!

I figured it was high time I get going on a few projects for my own little baby (bless his fire-breathing, gestating little heart), so I got started with these:

...because every newborn needs rain boots...

 

Aren’t they cute?  Husband’s decided the baby’s color ought to be green (which I’m totally on board with, since green is my favorite color), so I made these awesome little things in two colors:  the body is dark green & the details are from a hand-dyed green & gold yarn which I got at this awesome shop, and which I’ve been saving for over a year now for *just* the right project.  (I think a tiny son counts as the right project).  *grin*

 

 

I loved the pattern for these little guys EVEN MORE than I loved the apple bean bag one, which means you can visit my Etsy shop today & order a pair for the tiny son (or daughter, or niece, or nephew…) in your life!  Hooray!

A Crunchy Welcome to Earth Blanket!

…for a sweet baby girl slated to make her debut in early March:

It’s my favorite crazy stitch, only this time in an all natural, unbleached cotton.  Fabulous!

It’ll go great with the sweet little dragon baby I made to go along with it.  I can’t wait to meet her (the baby, not the dragon.  I’ve already met the dragon).  *grin*
