Yay, babies!

My boss just found out his wife is having a boy! Yay for knitting stuff! I have it pictured in my head to make a little doggie or panda or some sort of animal hooded sweater. Okay, mostly because *I* wear a bear hooded sweater still, they are super cute on kids. His wife is due in January I think, so I have loads of time.

Also, it will be mega cold here, so I'm not afraid to make something warm! What is your favourite item to make babies?

When my boys were babies I loved anything with a hood that had ears on it, or hats with earflaps! The hat pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts is fun and quick...ooo ooo or there are stuffies too! Maybe it's just me but I hated it when people gave me really nice sweaters and stuff for them because they grow out of those so quickly, not to mention puking all over them *sigh*

p.s. by "stuff" I mean outfits...we did spring for the baby Nike Airs of course.

There is a guy I karaoke with who recently found out his gf/wife(??; Never really asked before) is having a baby boy, so I started on a baby blanket in Simply Soft's Sofy Blue. OMG, IT IS SO FREAKIN' SOFT!!! I love the yarn!! I've been doing a 1 in ribbing edge surrounding a stockinette panel... So pretty so far. =3

I’m not really into the babies but I like small things. I coo over anything tiny. Booties and socks especially. The existence of baby trainers completes my life.
