    Default Looking for a pink project

    A family friend of our is pregnant and is expecting a little girl in January. SInce I have learned to knit no one I known has had a girl and I am desperate to find a over the top pink project. She is a young mom and kinda hippy-like and I would like to find a pattern that fits both of those recommendations. I have tons of google searches and can't find something I love.....any suggestions?? Any books that ya'll may have that are worth looking in to??

    I can't think of a hippy baby pattern of the top of my head.

    The debbie bliss baby knits books are my favorite for baby knits. They have the most adorable stuff in them. I have "Simply Baby" and that's where both of the patterns I have made Jacob have come from.

    Is she planning to use disposables or cloth diapers? If she's planning to cloth diaper then maybe some cute pink wool longies/shorties/skirty would be nice Specially if you make a matching hat or headband or something

    I like this site for some really cute patterns I've yet to make any as I just started teaching myself to knit this past week, but some of them are on my list of wants when I get good enough (and when I find out if this baby is a girl/boy, lol)

    Thanks for your help ladies! Katie- I have one of her book and I love how easy they are but I couldn't really find anything that fit what I wanted to do. I made Kaden a sweater from one of her books and its really cute!

    Nancy-Thanks for the awesome link, I stumbled across that website when I was searching for a blanket pattern and didn't even think to look at clothes. I decided on the baby bell bottoms and a cute little tie sweater

    As soon as I get some progress on them I will post some pictures

    THANKS AGAIN!

    Cool Let us know how it goes

    Those baby bell bottoms are on my list of wanted projects to do. I'd love to see the finished product and hear if it's easy/hard to knit

    I just love little lacy baby girl sweaters with booties and a hat blanket all matching. I bet the Mom would love anything you made her, even if it's more traditional. I have quite a few baby books, but most of them are out in the barn.

    Have you looked at your library to see what they have for patterns? I know there are cute things for a little bit bigger kids (a year or so).

    It looks like you picked out a project though. Had you thought of adding in a hat/bootie/blanket set to go with it (in the same yarn), even if it's not exactly the same. It would be adorable all together.

    I am always looking for patterns that are unusual and i have one from Annie monestat in Vogue summer 07 that is cute. But i really like rowan and then i have some german mags for babies, and some old mags from the 50-70s so if you should need something give a hollar. I also never thought to look on that site for clothes either.

    I think Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Jacket done in a cute girly sock yarn would be darling. Not fussy, but charming.

    I second the wool pants if she's cloth diapering. It would be perfect for a January baby. Warm and dry.
