Knitting For Baby

I finished my stack of little baby tank-tops. These are the gender neutral ones:

Here is the pink one (just in case) – The color is not accurate, by the way. It is not nearly this bright and glowing in real life. My camera doesn’t do well with pink or red…

… with cute buttons:

The elephant one is the only one that isn’t plain. It was the last one and I was getting bored with this very boring pattern. Here is a close-up of the elephants because they are so very cute:

I used the chart from this pattern. I should have swatched first, though, because I think I could have made them a little better if I had. Oh, well.

These were made following the Baby’s Bamboo Singlet pattern out of the book 101 Luxury Yarn One Skien Wonders. I used Knit Picks Risatta. (Ravelry Project Page Link) I did change the pattern to knit in the round, but other than that it is a perfectly fine pattern, if not a little boring.

I have some left over yarn that I am experimenting with to see if I can get one more little shirt out of it. I didn’t want to do boring stripes, so I am playing with some slipped stitches. I don’t know if I will have enough to make the whole shirt, but this is what I have so far. Slipped stitches take less yarn, right?

Now, if I have a girl, I will just add some flowers to the blue tops, and if I have a boy, I will give the pink one to my new knitting buddy who is having a girl that same week. Lots of babies are on the way! Yippee!
