Baby Gifts

I finished the diagonal garter stitch baby blanket I was working on. A corner of it is pictured here along with a few of my favorite sock darners. I look for these whenever I get a chance to go antique shopping.

For the blanket, I used two strands of Red Heart Soft Baby (lilac and white) on size 11 needles and just knit the increase side until it seemed to be big enough, then began decreasing. It ended up being about 32" square. You can find a free pattern on the Lion Brand Yarn website. This blanket is soft for baby and easy care for mom...also very affordable.

For my next project, I've started these.

They are for a friend who just had a baby boy. The next picture is of a pair of booties I thought would be good for a boy, but after they were finished I wondered if the cuff was too frilly. What do you think?
