Baby knits

Since I mostly only post things about my shop, I decided to blog about something personal. For anyone that doesn't know, I am almost 34 weeks pregnant. We are expecting a baby girl on March 16. For the last month or so I have been working on some stuff for the baby. I have never really designed clothes for an infant, so this is a first for me. I am really happy with how everything turned out though. I made a cute little pink slouch hat for her too, but I hope to photograph it on her.

Yarn used is a bulky weight 33% wool / 67% nylon blend. Color is hyacinth. One size fits most. Check it out here: http://www.bettysoriginalknits.etsy.com/.
