New Baby gifts

My sister-in-law's baby shower was this weekend. I am more than just a little bit excited that she decided to use cloth diapers and wool with their new baby! My favorite thing to knit has always been tiny newborn knits for the quick factor. They go so fast, there is no time to get bored with what I am doing!

So I knit them up a few things to use when my new niece or nephew gets here in a few weeks.

First a soaker using MM Copper Patina, I've always loved this colorway and am so happy with the way that it worked up.

And then since I have been itching to do some linen stitch, a linen stitch soaker using MM Seaglass. When I found out I was pregnant with Elise, the very first thing I knit was a romper with this colorway, so it always reminds me of that brand new baby stage. 

And then just for fun, they really needed an elephant. The baby's nursery has a jungle theme, and this pattern is just perfect. Elise has a purple elephant from the same pattern that she sleeps with, so now the cousins have matching elephants.
Behind it you can sort of see the non knitted cloth diaper cake that I put together, I got a disposable diaper cake (since that is what we were using at that time) from a dear friend, and it was the cutest thing ever. I had a lot of fun with this cloth diaper twist.
