Hey, remember when I knit two baby blankets for two dear friends a couple of years ago and then the babies were born on the same day? Well, believe it or not, THE SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN. On January 4th 2011, both EF and TT gave birth to baby boys! And guess what? I knit little green gifts for both of them! This is bound to happen a third time, right?
Ronin, son of TT, was the recipient of the first hat I ever knit “in the round.” It’s a pattern from Stitch ‘N Bitch called, “umbilical cord hat.” Luckily, it turned out cuter than it sounds! Ronin is the little brother of Aiden, for whom I made baby booties — one of the first things I knit, period. He’s also ridiculously adorable. I mean, just look at him. *swoon*
If you’ve been following my blog, you might recognize the blanket pattern on EF’s baby boy Russell. It’s the same one I made for LS’s baby girl Evie. One major difference was that Evie’s was made from soft acrylic, while Russell’s was made from cotton. I love how both of them turned out, but they do look and feel very different. EF says that Russell snuggled with this blanket for a while after the photo shoot was over. Mission accomplished!
I can’t wait to meet both of these babies in person in a few months!
