Loom Knit Blanket

My mom knit a blanket for my daughter using infinity loom. She did basketweave stitch on Bernat blanket yarn Sailors delight. I love the softness and texture of the blanket. Thank you mom for the wonderful gift.

I tried finger knitting. It was quick and easy to make kids sized headband and bracelets.

Knitted Baby Accessories

Stitched the sun hat for my daughter based on pattern at http://treefrogknits.blogspot.com/2010/04/sun-hat.html. It turned out to be very useful on cold but sunny days.

Stitched the mittens based on pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-mitts-2. It turned out nice, but I didn’t use it on her as it is not yet very cold here.

Stitched the socks based on pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-socks-25 just for fun.

Stitched the shoes based on pattern at http://www.gina-michele.com/2015/01/easiest-baby-booties-ever-knitting.html. I probably should have made a button hole and added a button. It is big for her and keeps slipping off her toes.

Knitted these with cotton thread for summer use.

I made the top with slight modifications to pattern available at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/Lucille. I had cast on twice the recommended number of stitches by mistake. I noticed that only after I did increase in a row. By now I reached the required chest round, so didn’t do any more increases required by the pattern. I used ribbon to adjust the neck round. This resulted in a puff sleeve. I love the way it looks on my daughter. I think it looks better than the original.

For the shoe, I followed the pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/baby-shoes-17. Using 2 colours would be prettier. But I think the shoe suits the coat better like this.

For the hairband, I followed the pattern at http://www.knitpicks.com/patterns/Lacy_Headbands_Pattern__D50552220.html. Since it looked plain I added a flower. For the flower, I followed the pattern at http://www.mypicot.com/202.html. I think I should have kept the two buttons horizontally, so that it looks ok when I extend the headband.

Stitched the cardigan based on free pattern available at Ravelry site http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amabel-cardigan. I added two more rows to get the button hole at right distance. This covers the neck better. Also it can be folded like a collar for a change.

For the cap I followed the pattern available at https://mariannaslazydaisydays.blogspot.com/2014/07/matching-hat-for-all-in-one-baby-top.html. I would recommend using a cast on that stretches better, as I had some trouble getting it on her head. It looks lovely on her though. I plan on converting it into a bonnet once she outgrows it.

For the booties I followed the pattern available at https://mariannaslazydaisydays.blogspot.com/2015/06/lilac-blossom-baby-set.html
