    Some of you have mentioned in other threads that you are knitting clothes for your little one, so I thought I'd start its own thread.

    I've been learning to knit so I can make some baby clothes and am loving it. Am currently knitting this lilac jumper. What are you ladies knitting?

    I've got a couple of baby pattern books and some funky baby booties patterns. Am happy to share with anyone who wants them xx

    That is very cute! My last pregnancy (mmc) had me desperate to start knitting and making felt animals for baby, never got the chance to start sadly, you are making me think again, oh but I can't knit either so might take forever!

    I knitted when I was little (although had to get mum to cast on and cast off!), but only scarves and then I never finished them! For my LO I decided I wanted to knit a teddy bear and it turned out really well:

    I've also knitted a cardigan, which was really difficult, took ages and is a little bit small, but she's wearing it because it took forever! Can't find a pic at the mo.

    Now I'm in the middle of knitting her a coat and hat, but also want to start a toy for my next. The coat and hat are these:

    And the toy is this one:

    My Nana is knitting lots of cardigans and stuff for us.

    I'm currently knitting this blanket. I'm knitting the squares and my husband is sewing them together. This is a quarter of it. Two quarters will be like this and the other two quarters with have a white square in the middle and four pink ones. When it's all put together, my husband is going to crochet a yellow border around it because we think the pink and white looks like a battenburg cake, so we're going to do the yellow to look like the icing :D

    Ella, that teddy looks great.
    Juice, what a great idea for a blanket. I haven't made one yet so might look for something similar.

    Sam, I've got the following cardigan patterns. If you like any of them I could scan them in and email them to you.
    Sorry I seem to only be able to load one pic at a time!

    I used a book called "knitty gritty, a beginners guide" to learn to knit. It shows you step by step pictures of how to do different stitches. Then gives you a little project so you can practice.

    If you message me your email address I'll scan in the patterns and send them to at at the weekend. I'll try explain the patterns as best I can x
