So, this is how I outfit behbehs:
I hear someone's preggers. It's twin girls. I diligently scoot off to find suitable (read: totally cute) baby patterns. I obviously choose too many. Obviously.
While I tried to avoid pink, it was actually a bit of a challenge to find baby-friendly yarn in my stash that was not this stereotypical colour.
-two wee elfin-esque pointy hats, bottom left
-an eyemask, for a tired out mama (above elfin hats)
-two little lace sweaters, (sitting on the left side of the grouping), both cotton and both yellow with sunflower button
-two sewn felt owls (right along the top there)
-melt-n'-pour soaps with lavender, and some homemade bath fizzes with the same scent for aforementioned tired out mama (along top beside owls)
-two hoodies, courtesy this pattern from Knitty; one is pink and one yellow (see pic below for yellow hoodie close-up)
-bottom of the circle is a set of pumpkin hats and booties (since the wee filles are having their birthday in October)
-just to the left of the hats n' booties are some baby legwarmers
-and sitting beneath it all is a cotton gift bag/purse I sewed up the night before I gifted the package
As you may be able to tell, I had me some bigtime fun searching out and knitting up baby stuffs. These are the first infants I've gotten to knit for!
Here's to hoping I get some modelled shots forwarded my way :)
*There's nothing wrong with scrapbooking - in fact, there's far too much that's right about it. I had a grand ol' time making up the labels for the gifts.
At issue is my tendency to be attracted to knit-picky (heh), tedious tasks/crafts, and one has only so many hours in the day and days in the life to craft!
