Finished-Object Friday: All About the Babies

Today's Finished Object Friday will focus on all the baby things that I've made over the last couple of months.  Man, I know a lot of babies being born this autumn!

 I didn't like the flap design on this earflap hat for a baby boy.  So I improvised my own using i-cord.

The finished product, using Swish DK from Knitpicks.  So cute!  I'd definitely make this one again.

Purple baby-girl sweater for my friend's step daughter, due with a girl sometime in September.  This came from the One Skein Wonders book and all I can say is, one skein my eye!  It did come out really cute though, and I love the heart-shaped buttons.

Since I found myself with "extra" orange and green yarn, I whipped up a little Pumpkin hat.  So cute, and it knit up in one night!

Last but not least, a "swirl hat" for a baby girl.  When this yarn came in from Knitpicks, I was expecting a lighter pink.  (It's so hard to pick colors online.)  When it came, I could see where the name 'Summertime Blooms" came from, because it reminded me of geraniums!  I love it!  There will be a little pair of leg warmers to go with these as soon as I can put them together.

You will notice that there's no mention of anything for my sister-in-law, who is due with a girl in November.  Never fear---her shower is this weekend!  Mommy and Baby are so special, they'll get their own blog post.  :)
