As soon as I discovered I was pregnant, I started knitting baby clothes like a maniac. Not all have been successful. Like the tiny bow hats and the petite socks, which were all too small. And then there was the super cool fox-hat, which could have been a perfect fit if I hadn’t forgot about it until Edith had outgrown it. But there are pieces of knitwear that have become favorites in the little bookworm’s closet.
Like her little blue dress. I wouldn’t mind later on making a similar dress for her in a larger size.
Her little green cardigan has from the very beginning been her everyday jacket. At first I tied rubber bands around the sleeves so it could also function as gloves, but now she’s grown into it and has a separate pair of gloves.
Her scarf was quite useful this winter:
Her little blanket with a hoodie is a very good alternative to a duvet, and it can function as a sleeping bag or a wrap as well. I hadly ever use the button, but just wrap it around her instead.
One of her many many hats:
And. finally, the very first thing I knitted for her: her poncho. Naturally, this is not for sleeping, but it’s quite practical when she’s in her auto chair or her sling – practically anywhere when her arms are down by her side (as opposed to the preferred up-in-the-air baby position).
