Baby Stash

So. One of my most favorite things to do is to knit. Over the years, I had been collecting patterns and yarns for baby items. But never actually knitting any of it up because I wasn't pregnant. When we started going to an RE (2 years ago), I decided the time had come to start making baby things (positive thinking and all that crap). Here is my stash so far:


4 pairs of baby socks, 3 baby booties, 4 hats (one made by a friend) and 4 sweaters. There is one little sweater missing from the pile - it's in my car because I'm on a button search, and then a baby blanket that has some ends to be woven in.

I never thought that I'd actually have a baby in the winter - so most of these are not newborn size (I think the socks and maybe the blue sweater are). Guess I need to get knitting! It's much more fun to knit for an ACTUAL baby than the idea of a baby, KWIM?

Wow! You have much greater knitting skills than I do. I can only knit squares.

Wow, I'm very impressed by your stash! I didn't start until I got pregnant, and right now all I have to show for it is a blanket and pieces of a stuffed turtle. I really like the green cardigan. Are those owls on it?

Very nice! How sweet to be able to clothe your baby with what you've made yourself. Wish I were so talented.

Those are so cute. I'm also a knitter and haven't had the guts to make baby items for my so far non existent baby. I like your take on it thought. Probably better to start early if you want a bunch of hand-knit items for your baby. And I do love making baby items since they are so quick. Maybe I'll start fitting in a couple of items here and there between other projects.
