Santa Baby



My coworker had a baby boy in mid November so I knitted a little hat and mitten set for the little guy. I'm not quite sure if she knows about my blog, so hopefully it'll still be a surprise when she gets them in the mail in the next day or so.

The hat is the Very Basic Beanie pattern, slightly modified. I did the decreases much faster than the pattern called for because I was worried the hat would be too big for the baby. I used the Fast Baby Mitten pattern for the mittens (obviously, hehe). The yarn is Caron Simply Soft, which I really like a lot.

It's a little nerve wracking knitting baby things without a baby to try them on for size. The mittens look slightly long to me, but they also look very cute with the cuffs rolled up. I hope she likes them, and I hope they fit!

Beautiful!!! They are adorable. I think the mitttens look like the perfect size. The longer they are, the better they'll stay on. I'm sure that baby will look so cute in them!

Purl looks so festive decorated for Christmas! GREAT picture, Kate!!! Are you going to hang ornaments on June's ears?
