I worked on a wee project this weekend for the new babe. My "if it's a boy" set is almost complete. I'm still missing something. What else would you add?
Aren't cables dressy looking? They are to me, they just make projects look complicated when they're really just not. If this baby decides to be a girl I think I'll just switch that pom-pom out for a hot pink one. :) I'm planning ahead!
Here is a picture of a doll wearing the hat. I think it should fit a newborn quite nicely. Want to hear a (random) shocker? I'm not a huge fan of baby dolls. Rag dolls, I like; baby dolls, notsomuch. I didn't like them as a young girl either. My girls love them! And I love that they love them, but I've always found it weird that I have never been drawn to them. I've just always liked babies! Real, smelly (even stinky, I don't care), squishy, cooing, adorable babies. I have always had a big imagination too, but in my mind there are some things that just can't be substituted. It's like the difference in a water park and a plastic kiddie pool, it just doesn't add up. Rag dolls are awesome because they can just be a pal or extra tea party guest, they aren't walking around trying to be REAL babies with that creepy rubbery skin.
Well there you have it, a completely random post from a crazy, 6 month pregnant lady, who doesn't like baby dolls. Enjoy! :) Oh, and here is the Ravelry link if ya want to check out this free easy pattern! xo, Sam
