Tis the Season

Seems like every spring, babies are in season around here. That means knitting for babies.

Vi made this colorful cotton blanket for a friend of her daughter's. She knit strips, changing colors every five or six inches, and crocheted the strips together to create the checkerboard pattern.

Not to be outdone, Fran has crocheted this bright baby blanket out of every cheerful cotton we've got. This blanket isn't finished, however: Fran still needs to crochet the rosettes (can't wait to see it!)

Courtney knitted this adorable hat from Itty Bitty Hats for a friend's daughter. But now that she knows that she's having a boy in August, Courtney has started making an adorable blanket for her own baby. Congrats, Courtney!

And speaking of baby boys, Sam was kind enough to model the baby sweater Whitney made for her friend's son. The pattern is by Debbie Bliss.

And not to be out done, Kevin tried to model the sweater, too. Sorry, Kev, you're just not as cute as Sam!

Even Iris can't get enough of Sam.

And he seems pretty receptive to her advances.

Don't get me wrong: the babies around here are adorable. But I think Cindy and I will stick to the animals! (Cardigan and Vanilla, respectively.)
