Baby Knitting

This past few weeks has all been about baby- not mine!! no no no, but others. I have 8 just become and soon to be mums to knit for in the next few months- its viral round here- babies just spurting out everywhere.

So after gifting 2 pairs of bootees the other week, here is the IK kimono for a just born little girl, and the little badly-knit bear to go with it.




















































Also on my needles are some of Ann Budds Better than booties socks from the same IK (Summer 05). However, I am not good/a fan of short row heels and toes and am having some trouble working out how long the heel flap should be, how to properly turn the heel and how many gusset stitches I should be picking up. So it is not looking so good. Any help is greatly appreciated. Also how long before the end should I start decreasing for the toe?

So not much besides baby knitting going on here at the moment. Its not too boring but I can't wait to get back to selfish knitting.
