The baby sets are finally complete!

Knit Bits Meme

Alright, much later than I had originally intended, but completed none-the-less, here are the sets I have put together for the babe on the way:
Just-in-case-it's-a-Boy Set
Just-in-case-it's-a-Girl Set

Both sets include a pair of perfection pants longies I knit, a hat I knit, a Nanipoos newborn diaper, socks, and two shirt options. I figure this should covers us for the first day or night (whatever time this babe is born), and of course after we actually decide to put clothes on (which could be a while since I plan on taking an herbal bath with the babe and getting as much skin-to-skin time as possible!).

It feels really nice to have one more thing checked off my long list of things to do before this babe gets here! Both sets are packed into a paper bag and tucked away, patiently awaiting the day that one of them will be put into use! I can rest easy knowing that at least, if nothing else gets done, my child will be clothed!

So, do have a fun little item you have knit recently (or not so recently) for a babe in your life? If so, join the meme by leaving a comment with a link to a post about your project! Make sure to include the button in your post so people know this is the meme you are participating in!

Also, for all of you baby-knit-lovers out there, be sure to check back this summer during the Summer of Baby Love party on my blog- I will have lots of contests for knit & crocheted stuff, including some VERY cute longies and soakers! Until next time!

Ooh love them! Though I must admit, the girly set is particularly darling, with the ruffles! :) Can't wait to see a baby in one of them!

I love them both!!! I don't knit (though I want to learn) but I just wanted to say how cute they were and you have such talent!!

You make me want to get better at knitting. :) I'm such a n00b.
I just finished a boy hat and packed it away in the hospital bag. I'm actually off right now to get some yarn for a girl hat. :) DH thinks I'm deranged for doing two. :) I figure with EVERYTHING else for the first 3-6 months being yellow and green (leftovers from DD's baby clothes), it would be nice to at least have a pink hat or a blue hat.

I'm sure it'll be loved.

Awww...those are so cute! I love that you didn't just go with gender neutral colors!
