Here are some items I knit for a new baby in our church.
The bib is not bigger than the sweater, just a closer photo.
The blanket was knit fron the circle out and I just swithced colours whenever I felt like it. It is not as crooked as it looks in the photo either. I am not great at photography.
These items are all knit in cotton but each one was a different kind of cotton and they all feel really different. All are machine washable, which is important with a baby.
