 Baby Legs

I have bought Baby Legs for my daughter, which are so cute. I figured that it couldn't be too hard to come up with my own design. These are knit using Maizy in the colorway Miami Nice. The stitch pattern is a diagonal rib. She has skinny legs, so I measured her thighs and cast on 60 stitches. I think they turned out pretty cute!

 I am so proud!

i have been a part of this wonderful group for way over a year now and up until this point i have knit many baby items, but no baby garments...enter my first baby sweater:

i am so stinking excited about it! it isn't just my first baby sweater but my first garment ever! the picture doesn't do the color jsutice. it is a sweet pale blue color and the botton is from the Batrix Potter collection (Mrs. Ribby) and is a kitty. so cute!

at this point in my life i am not having babies and my friends have slowed down so this sweater is homeless. although to be honest i am not sure i am going to be able to give it away. i have a little stash of finished baby things that i have not been able to give away. this may become part of that stash for a very special baby one day!
