My Cousin's Babies

They are growing in count! I've been working on some mini collections to send to them as baby gifts!
This group went to my cousin Jacquie and her not yet born baby Gracie. The yarn was hand dyed at the Keep Me in Stitches in McCall, Idaho, which is where I learned to knit. I thought this yarn would also be appropriate because they recently moved to Idaho! I'd been saving this yarn for something special! Looks like Gracie was it!  I made things in various sizes so that she could wear them at different times and not look like a grape. Also, Ill never knit anything preemie. Those kids grow too fast!
I decided this sweater needed mismatched buttons because I found ONE purple heart button that just HAD to be used. It's on the bottom, I dont know if you can tell.
My next set was for Dasch who had allready been born and I knew for a fact was growing quickly! I had seen a pattern for a dinosaur had and what else, paired with a striped sweater could scream boy more loudly?!
Im planning on putting some winter items in my Etsy shop by the beginning of November and I think a dinosaur hat will be in the mix. Theyre too fun!

You are too cute! I however would recommend you make preemie sizes. .. some kids (like mine) wear them FOREVER! Also, not fun to think about but sometimes when a preemie passes on it is really hard to find something to dress them in. I would love to someday start crocheting or knitting sweet little gowns for those special babies. Another of the things on the when I have time list!!!

Hehe! Dasch is famous on cousin Jessica's blog! I can't wait for the cooler weather and his first trip to Yosemite so he can wear his sweater & beanie!
