Socks for preemature born babies

One last post for today.

I'm taking these to Vaasa Central Hospital later this year when I'm going to labor by myself.

Pattern: basic baby socks and Baby socks by Kerttu Latvala (Ravelry)
Yarns: Novita Nalle Colori, turquoise (813), Novita Nalle Marjaretki, cloudberry (841), Novita Nalle, pink (500), white (010), dark orange (219), colored (877), Novita Wool, green (332)
Needles: 3 mm DPNs

At first I was knitting very tiny socks but then remembered all the machines etc my son was stuck in five years ago and started making a bit wider socks.

Autumn hat for me

I desperately needed a green hat. Immediately. This was easy and fast to knit.

Pattern: Techno hat by Colleen Powley (Ravelry)
Yarn: Novita Isoveli, green (388)
Needles: 5 mm and 6 mm DPNs
0.9 skeins

I'm thinking about knitting a green collar to wear with this. After I've finished million other projects.

A gift for a big sister

..because her baby sister got the granny square blanket.

Pattern: two simple granny squares
Yarns: Novita Wool, pink (580) and light pink (504)

More baby stuff

Brown one's for our baby, the other two for a friend's baby.

The brown and the white one are started with 26 stitches instead of 30 - to fit a newborn. I also knitted 11+11+5+5+11+11 rows instead of 13+13+7+7+13+13.

Our baby got mittens aswell.

Lime alpaca socks

Pattern: Baby socks by Kerttu Latvala (Ravelry)
Yarn: Drops Alpaca, dark lime (2916)
Needles: 2.5 mm and 2.75 mm DPNs
1.1 skeins

I was planning on knitting a simple triangle scarf for me this winter. Something so simple that I could knit even if we'd be so lucky to have another colic baby. This week I saw this beautiful Lang Yarns' Jawoll Magic Dégradé skein in local yarn store and just couldn't resist it. This will be Boneyard shawl by Stephen West (Ravelry).

Edit. Oh dear. Can you see what's wrong with one sock? I'm too pregnant.

Edit2. Fixed.
