Daydreaming on Ravelry

Hi there, it’s Friday today so hopefully most of you are getting ready for a relaxing, crafty weekend. Personally I don’t have anything special planned except for the never ending housework (ugh) and some knitting and maybe dyeing (YEAH).

Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time on Ravelry looking at baby oriented patterns thinking of all the things I could knit for the 4 babies that are going to join this world later this year. I have downloaded and printed out a number of free patterns but I’ve also purchased some patterns. I’m looking at blankets and then softies, knitted and crocheted “doudous” like we call them in France. These are like the soft toys that babies like we sometimes call security blankets/toys. I’d love for one of my handknit/crocheted items to become a security blanket/toy for someone:) That’s so cute:)

Here are the patterns that I’m thinking of – some free and some purchased

boy mouse in sweater   Boy mouse in a cabled sweater by Julie Williams  Bunny girl in a dotty dress by Julie Williams  Waldorf knitted rabbit doll by Tatyana Korobkova  Pot belly baby bunny by Aleta Lyn Pot Belly baby duck by Aleta Lyn Noopy’s lovey by Lelah Olander  Fuss free baby blanket by Louise Tilbrook  –  I have actually started making this one and for once I’m not using my own hand dyed yarn but a commercial yarn. Its Rooster Almerino Aran yarn and it is a mix of merino and alpaca so a super soft yarn. Here’s a picture of mine so far, it’s in my lap and as I knit on circulars it’s not easy to picture the whole thing but you get the idea and the colours. The pattern is more like an outline and then you can do like you wish, choose your colours, length of stripes, stockinette or garter stitch and so forth.

Wow that’s a lot of patterns! I’m sorry if I have inundated you with patterns and ideas, I guess I lost myself daydreaming and thinking of all the wonderful things I could knit/crochet for friends and family! If only I had more time to knit!!!

Are you doing any baby knitting at the moment? Do you have a favorite baby pattern? Be it a blanket, softie or clothing? Do share and show pictures of your finished items if you feel like it. I’d love to see your work and or favorite patterns.

That’s it for today, take care and have a wonderful day:)
