Baby Stuff

My sister is due to have her second baby in January and she sent me some Pinterest pics of what she wanted for her girl.  Obviously her nursery color theme is pink, white and gray.  The set below was done with one skein each of Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Pink, White and Silver Grey.

The patterns are: Itty Bitty Ribbed Leggies (w/striping & minus the pom poms), this newborn owl hat crochet pattern (though I added the flower but in pink instead of the white & used felt instead of button eyes), this other crochet owl hat pattern (with sleeping lashes instead), and the striped crochet flowered earflap hats in 2 sizes (0-3 & 3-9 mos).  I ended up doing 2 striped hats 'cause I forgot to work in the gray into the smaller size, so I made a second in the next size up.

Before I got my color marching orders from my sister, I had started a cutely constructed pattern that my knitting BFF was working on.  I may give this to my sister anyway since it's in cotton (for HI).

Pattern: Snug
Yarn: Plymouth Fantasy Naturale in a multi from a lys closing awhile back
Needles: size 10
