FO: For a Little Adventurer

My girlfriend is going to have a baby soon. Very soon. But I hadn’t made her anything yet because of two things: 1. She chose to not find out the sex of her baby (Booo) 2. Because she’s Jewish she’s keeping with custom and not accepting gifts before the baby is born. So for me I know that means I just had a little more time to make my gifts but she did give me the room’s color scheme and I’ve started on her baby blanket of Kelly green, navy blue and grey. But the other day she sent me a text and asked if I could make this onesie with my Silhouette machine and heat press. She was thinking about getting it as a bringing home baby outfit but did not want to spend $26. So I obliged and then thought I can’t send her a onesie without a hospital hat, right?

So I dug through my trusty stash of Caron Simply Soft yarn and found a lovely Kelly green decided on the TinCan Knits Barley hat pattern. It had just enough texture and interest in a tiny hat to keep me going in a short span of time. I was able to whip this baby up in about 2 1/2 hours using my double pointed needles since I couldn’t find my 16 inch circulars in the size I needed.

Not bad, right? I would’ve also made some tiny socks but that can wait until I’m finished with the baby blanket. My order of Mighty Stitchy Bulky came last week and I started on the same Chevron Baby Blanket pattern I made for my friend’s baby girl in February. This one will be heavy on the green with blue and grey as accents, maybe like chevron stripes in between. We shall see. The onesie has happily been delivered and added to her hospital bag and now we wait to see when baby boy/girl will get here!

  1. I love that green. Its size is really cute. Fun onesie. I liked learning about that Jewish custom.
