Knitted baby set.

It just hit me earlier this week that September is halfway over. Which means that my baby niece is due in like...less than 6 weeks! I can't believe it, you guys. I can't wait to be an aunt. Have I mentioned that? :) My sister-in-law and brother had one of those 3D/4D ultrasounds done a while back and brought home the video and pictures. It was so amazing to see Stella's sweet little face. She frowned and poked her lips out and propped her chin on her hand. I can't wait to meet her in person. :)

Anyway, the church we attend gave them a baby shower over the weekend. I took a quick break from sweater knitting (and as of Tuesday, the sweater is done! That post will be up soon) to knit a small gift to take to the shower. I ended up not getting to go because I had a stomach bug over the weekend, but I'm glad I made them anyway.

The hat is made from this pattern, which is incredibly simple but looks nice. It's free and available in basically every size you could want, from baby to adult! I had to make the hat a tiny bit shorter than it should have been, because I ran out of yarn. But it's still plenty big enough for a newborn's head. :)

The booties are from this pattern that I used before. They're cute and adorably tiny as a finished product, but you really have to either stuff them with tissue paper or put them on an actual baby to make them have a shape. While you're knitting them, they're rather shapeless.

I think all of my baby gifts are done for now, and I'm going to do some selfish knitting (and sewing) until about November when I have to start on Christmas gifts. :) And now we're just waiting on the baby!
