Too Many Babies

Everyone is having a baby. EVERYONE. At least that's what it seems like. I've got two sister-in-laws pregnant and a couple cousins, too. It's kept me pretty busy... and I'll show you what I've been busy with:

Yellow is such a fun color to work with! Honestly I hate it for the most part, but it's cute when it's for babies. These were so easy to make I could hardly stand it. And they go great with most of the little dresses I've found, too. Who doesn't love a little mary jane on a girl?

Same Style, different colors. It was a mix of pink, white, and purple. Jesse's mom supplied me with the pearly white buttons, which were the perfect compliment to these little mary jane's. They look so dainty in person!

These rainbow double straps were so quick! I was a little worried that the colors wouldn't knit up well, but they turned out to be a lot cuter than I thought. The two different colored buttons really pop and I like how these turned out. The colors are so fun and really suit for a baby.

These dainty little ballet slippers were probably the easiest pattern out of all of them. I had the pair knit up within an hour. Now the pattern called for ribbon to tie them with, but instead I knit some laces in two long rows. I like the effect, but I suppose ribbons as a substitue would be pretty cute, too.

These t-strap booties are probably my favorites that I've ever made, and part of it is due to the light lavendar color, while the rest is due to the buttons. They're round and pretty shiny, and really make these booties even cuter than I thought they would be. If I could have made them in adult size, you know I'd be wearing them all the time!!! They were easy and fun to do and the final look is adorable!

These tube socks I did in reverse colors. The pattern called for white with green stripes, but my love of color took over. As well as the fact that I have a ton of green, and not a lot of white. I really like these for boys. The rest of my patterns, excluding a few, are really more geared towards girls. So kind of a nice change of pace to do something a little more "masculine."
