Baseball Beanie

I saw one of these on Pinterest, and I couldn't resist making one. Mine didn't turn out quite as cute as the one that inspired me, probably cuz there's no baby posing in mine. This is the original image that forced me to make a baseball hat:

As if we all weren't baby hungry enough, people have to go and post stuff like this on the internet!

Whirligig Shrug

I made this Whirligig Shrug out of the Anime yarn Ryan brought back from San Francisco. I wanted to use it to make something for someone who liked Japanese Anime, or at least someone who had some connection to Japan. Then Ryan pointed out that we had friends who were two months away from having a part-Japanese baby with a Japanese name. At first I wanted to knit her a kimono sweater, in keeping with the theme, but this pattern was too cute to pass up.

I had to make Sully model it, cuz he was the closest thing I had to a 6-month-old baby girl. I tried it on the sock monkey, but it had no shoulders, so it looked lame. Isn't it weird that it fits him and it's size 6 months? It's a little small, but still-he's 16 months old!

Sorry Sully! You're still very manly.
