Is anyone in our DDC on Ravelry? My name there is Salihah. I'd love to see what you're all knitting, crocheting, etc!

my name is the same on ravelry. I use it a lot, but never upload pictures. Maybe now that I have some completed baby projects done I will spend some time next weekend updating it.

My SIL just told me I should check that site out. Maybe after the baby comes, we're on dial-up (ugh!) Soon I'll probably have plenty of time to sit around and nurse while surfing the net.

You reminded me I wanted to check that out. I signed up today, same username, but nothing done with my account yet. I'm fairly new to knitting, so far I've only done scarves and hats knitted flat. I bought some circular needles to try out this cute blanket/sack for the new baby. I won't start that until after Christmas as I want to attempt a few more hats before then! I better get going.

I'm on there too. Same username but I'm bad about posting pictures, though that's usually because I'm not good at finishing projects. This little guy is inspiring me to finish more so maybe I'll start posting pics.

I'm on. jsk51.

Nicole - I just started knitting 2 months ago - circular needles are really very easy. I was quite surprised.

Ok, you prompted me to join-same name...although all the patterns are probably going to consume my time until the baby is born. Mmmm...crochet appliques.

I think I found you guys there, fun to see what you've been working on! Here are two knitting patterns I found on Ravelry recently for anyone interested in knitting for your baby...

Leg warmers: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...tle-legwarmers I thought these would be great for under a layette gown for easy diaper changing those first few weeks. I just started a pair but only have a few inches done.

Newborn hat: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...t-fit-baby-hat This one is supposed to fit newborn babies. So many baby hat patterns are too big. I cast on and finished in a couple hours, it looks like it will fit well.

Wallaby Sweater: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/yarn...derful-wallaby I want to try and find this pattern, I really like it.

Knitted Nursing Pads: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/nursing-pads I want to try these.

Ohh I think I will need to make those overall longies once I know whether this is a boy or girl!

I just finished my first pair of longies (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sheepy-pants) today and other than the fact that somehow one leg came out about .75cm shorter than the other (enough of a difference that DH noticed, but I'm hoping I can block into shape LOL) I am really pleased with them.

I might try the Sheepy Sack too - seems like a smart idea for nighttime!
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sheepy-sack

And that baby hat link you posted looks promising - although I'll need to hunt down some larger DPNs!

I made this hat for a friend's newcomer - yeah, it won't fit straight away, but it was a really nice easy knit and came out perfectly - and we're just starting our winter here so it'll fit before the end!
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...ds-earflap-hat
Made a pair of baby mittens to go with it.

I'm loving this hat too:
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...atrix-baby-hat
I just need to pick up some more DK yarn!

Ooooh! Fun ones! I'll have to try that sheepy sack. I have a worsted skein of wool from Zen Strings that I'd love to use but it's not quite enough for a sweater, longies, or anything. Thanks for idea!

If you like doing hats, here is one I made that was fun: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Sali...eedle-baby-hat the link is to the one I made because I did some modifications to make it for a newborn. It turned out nice with the changes and certainly newborn size. But the original pattern link is there, too.

Oh I like this. I prefer knitting in the round too, so I may try your notes. Love the colours you used! I've only been knitting since November, and need to figure out where locally I can source Malabrigo, since it seems every third pattern I see uses some kind of Malabrigo yarn!

I figured out the circular needles and this is the pattern I used: http://www.blogster.com/nittineedles...t-free-pattern It was really, really easy and quick! I am going to make baby a hat to match, since I have some yarn left over.

I love those baby leg warmers - I hope to get to those too before baby gets here.

Thanks for posting all the patterns.

Well done Nicole!

Did you work with 2 strands of yarn together? How does that work? Of course, I suspect that our cat would take up residence in that cuddle bag long before the baby got here

Yeah, I need to get going on some legwarmers too!

No I didn't use two strands, I just used a super chunky yarn and it worked out fine.

I got the yarn for the leg warmers today, but I hate that I can't just go to JoAnn's or Michaels for my circular knitting needle needs - they only have 29in ones and those are way too big for the leg warmers! Grrrr
