i've been dying to show these to you! i am so proud of myself. i know you aren't supposed to say things like that, but i just like how these turned out and they are my biggest knitting project yet. have i ever told you how much more i like knitting than sewing?? SO MUCH! mostly because i'm a more precise knitter than i am as a sewer. its a much more relaxing process for me. but really that is neither here nor there so we should just look at the pretty pictures...

i made these for my cousin's two girls. she has a 20 month old and newborn. they are the most beautiful little girls...every time my mom sees pictures or videos (they are her sister's granddaughters) she has nana fever! she wants someone of her own to spoil!

confection baby shrug 24 months

this is the 24 month size. it looks HUGE to me, but i haven't seen a 2 year old in a while so we're hoping it fits. i checked my gauge several times, but it was dead on. i've found that i ALWAYS have to use two needle sizes up from what the pattern calls for...i knit tight, but i'm getting better/looser.

confection baby shrug 3 months

this is the 3 month size. these were the first projects i ever had to actually knit in the round for...its pretty much exactly the same as regular knitting!

i added this knit rose to dress arie's up a bit. i saw it on another raveler's shrug and fell in love. i had a hard time getting it small enough, but i think it worked out ok.

Just found your blog through...somewhere, I lost track. But I wanted to say how completely adorable these shrugs are. It really makes me want to put down my crochet hook (not that I'm that good with crochet, anyway), and pick up some knitting needles!
