Baby's first pants

tranny_saurus's picture

Thumper arrived early Saturday morning and is a little peanut. My in-hospital project was a pair of supersoft newborn pants in Knitpicks Crayon. Here's Thumper trying them on (since the hospital just likes to dress babies in shirts and diapers). Just for fun, we compared them to a pair of "newborn" pants we got as a gift.

It is very fulfilling to make a project and see the end product so quickly!

More baby and knitting patterns to follow....

Thanks for sharing Thumper

Thanks for sharing Thumper with us, what a wonder babies are, they remind me to dream and be amazed by what's around me. The yellow pants are great and Thumper is too! Hope the Mother is doing well. Remember - children are for spoiling, this one will have lots of knitted goods for starters I guess.
