Be still my pink squishy heart.





Way back in the spring I knit a cute little jacket for a baby-to-be. The babe was born in April and her beautiful sweet face graced the pages of this here blog. This baby is the baby of Gods. She is beautiful and fabulous and I want to eat her (she is that cute.) I'm in love with her. I can only imagine what her parent's must feel.


Back to the knits. I have made it a habit to knit my baby stuffs a few sizes bigger than newborn size. What size do I knit? Don't know - I don't do a gauge swatch for my baby knits. Waste. of. time. They will fit into it eventually. That's the beauty of a baby knit.


Eventually has come for the Neala bean. She is the first to fit into my baby knits. I swear, there is no better feeling than seeing a small thing wrapped in your lovingly constructed garment. I knit this especially for her while she floated around in the tum tum. Neala was conceived just before Rob's and my wedding. Her parent's found out they were pregnant just before they left the hotel to attend our wedding ceremony. Neala was there in her little simple cell structure; waiting to burst onto the scene that is now her life. There are no words to describe the wonder of that little bean there then and here now, in something that I MADE!






**Thank you, thank you for all of the comments on the sock. I am a total goober - and I'm a bit sore today from all that bending. Whew. I gots to hit to Yoga mat or something! The real picture (pre-photoshop) was a bit more pornographic than the published. Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "birds eye view."**

So cute! Just wait 'till you have one of your own (if you do)! You think you're in love now! Just wait!

I love the sweater and the tiny model! Baby sweaters in non-baby colors are so wonderful.

Aw, she's as cute as can be! Mack finally fit into a non-swatched sweater that I made, too! Cute babies and cuddly handknits just go together!

Gotta agree, she's a looker! And the sweater - very nice.

At first, though, I thought the title was about the yarn I sent you. Didya get it yet?

She looks scrumptious ... and the jacket is fantastic. I love knitting baby things in non-baby colors ... there's enough sky blue and pastel pink in the world.

What a sweetie! I love seeing babies in baby handknits. It's just so sweet and heart-tugging. Neala is growing up so big and is so beautiful. I remember the birth picture on your blog. Thanks for the update!

Awwww. So cute (the knit and the kid). I'm a quilter, and sometimes I have to order people to actually let the kid use the quilt I make, as they tend to say, oh, s/he'll ruin it. Glad to see the little one actually enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Way cute knit on a way cute baby! Love the picture of the two of you. Just think, someday she may pass the knit down to a bean of her own. How cool is that!

What a cute jacket. Isn't it odd that we think of babies being so cute that we want to bite or eat them?

Darling baby! Snazzy sweater. I completely agree that gauge swatching on baby stuff is a waste of time... Although i did some pretty strange proportional calculations when i realized I'd bought worsted weight instead of sport weight for a Zimmerman Surprise Baby Jacket. (I love that name... it always sounds like the BABY is a surprise!)... Must set up the seams on the two I've done... One is all macho in camo colours (but a very nice ombre, actually) and the other is girly-man in irridescent blue Coats and Clark.
I don't think knitting myself socks will turn ME into a yoga mat person. But it might be worth a try.
