Hooded Baby Towel

A Bundle Of Joy

The anticipation and the arrival of a new baby is an occasion for joy and celebration. But, with a new birth or new arrival comes the need for baby things, before the wee one arrives, new parents are rushing around getting things (lots of things) ready and in order, obtaining a new wardrobe, as well as all sorts of accessories and toys.

If you are able to knit, then you can make use of your talent and make a lot of baby items yourself. Whether you're looking to make something as a gift for a newborn, a baby shower or you're trying to provide something for your own bundle of joy .

Teddy Bears And Toys

Teddy Bear

You can knit a Teddy bear for the new little one with less than one skein of Knit Picks Crayon Boucle yarn in the colorway of Cashew. He is a relatively easy knit and the results are adorable! Required skills include increasing and decreasing (kfb, k2tog, ssk), knitting in the round on dpns, mattress stitch or other invisible seaming methods, and basic embroidery skills (for snout and eyes). This Teddy Bear pattern is knit entirely in the round, with the legs, arms, snout and ears seamed to the head and body. There is a check box next to each line of directions so that you will never forget where you might have left off! Enjoy!..I love the check box idea, makes things go a lot smoother when you know where you left off.

Knit Diaper Soakers



Soakers are diaper covers, they are usually made of wool, which is known for its ability to absorb liquid and there by retaining it. Although some are and can be knit with cotton or a cotton wool blend.

Many new mothers are going back to using cloth diapers. They each have there own reasons for doing so, however , I know some are doing it for financial reasons and others for the environment...To me those are two good solid reasons, saving a lot of money by using cloth rather than disposable diapers and that means less waste going to the landfill.

Soakers are a very good way to cover the diaper, keeping baby, outer clothing, bedding and mommy and daddy dry.
