All the Baby Knits

I'm becoming an aunt for the first time and I am so excited! This weekend was my sister's baby shower and I wanted to give her some of the most classic baby knits.

Yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Rios in Fresco Y Seco 
Needles: US Size 10

The blanket was such a treat to knit. Firstly, Malabrigo Rios is my favorite yarn to knit with -- very soft and great color variegation. The pattern was also perfect for knitting during a five hour road trip I took to Montreal for a conference -- easy repeats and speedy (I even got some knitting in during the conference sessions). I cast on 101 instead of 71 and used two skeins to make it bigger. The result is a very soft and warm blanket that can be thrown in the washing machine in case there are any accidents :)

There are so many booties patterns out there! I was going to try a non-seaming one but ended up settling on this classic version from Bernat. There's just something about knit baby booties that is the cutest.

Pattern: Personal

I cannot for the life of me remember what pattern I used for this hat. I'm pretty sure I snagged the cast on number from a pattern and then just proceeded to knit until it seemed long enough and then decreased around. 

I've been waiting to post final pictures of these projects until they were gifted. My ravelry queue is now full of other projects for after she arrives.
