Knitting for Babies

I'm not sure if there is anything more immediately satisfying as knitting for babies. You can create clothing in a fraction of the time that it takes to knit a similar item for yourself. Add in that the baby you're knitting for is a grandchild and you have knitting nirvana.

This adorable little item is a sweater Meaner made for her newest grandchild, yet to be born.

The details can only be fully appreciated by seeing the sweater in person, but trust me, it's all soft loveliness.

Suzan is working on a baby blanket for a friend. Maybe she'll send a photo when she's done. Baby blankets are a whole 'nuther thing. They do take a good while to complete, but they are well worth the effort. Mason, my youngest grandson, still drags around a hand-crocheted blankie he got when he was first born.
