Baby Boy Gifts

 We just got home from a trip to the East Coast. I hope to post some pictures of all our exploring soon, but first I wanted to follow up with gifts I made for a friend. Her boy is due next month, and she is busy decorating the nursery in a woodland theme.

I also knit him a pair of orange ribbed legwarmers, but forgot to take a picture before I gave them. They are in Ohio, so, sadly. no pictures until I make more. To make a pair yourself, check out this post. For a ribbed 'boyish' set, cast on 12 stitches on three double pointed needles. Continue knitting each row with knit 2 purl 2, until you reach your desired length. Cast off. I recently posted a basic knitting tutorial if you aren't sure how to cast on, knit, purl, or cast off.

We are taking in the last moments of warmth before the cold, gray fall weather officially sets in. I am not  ready to say goodbye to the sun. Not yet. I plan to take advantage of the few days of sun promised in this week's forecast.
