Baby Projects!

The endless baby projects have begun!  First up are these cute and teeny tiny booties made with a bit of leftover yarn from my Clapotis.  These are the "Chaussons mignons", a free pattern on Ravelry, and couldn't be easier.  You basically knit a T shape, fold the tops of the T down and sew around the edges.  So cute!  A project that even I can finish quickly!

I have now started on the "Bitty Bump", an itty bitty little vest being knit with the most luscious Malabrigo chunky yarn imaginable.  This one should also be quick if I could just figure out how to do the cute little armholes.

Annnnd... to make sure I have plenty of things going on at one time I ordered this stack of Joel Dewberry Heirloom fabrics from Fabricworm to make an airy little baby blanket (I got the voiles, they are so soft!):



These are washed and ironed, ready for me to start whacking them into squares.  I am finally going to make a zig zag quilt, which I have been wanting to make for quite some time, a lot like this one, or this one, or this one, so many to browse on flickr!

I have to get to work, there are a lot more projects in line after these ones!!!

Those booties are TOO CUTE! I might even be able to make them.

We miss you at guild - dying to see your bump.

Those will make a lovely zig zag quilt. Get to work! I know that watermellon isn't very big, because those booties are very tiny. Still impressed there is a watermellon considering there has been no water.
