Baby boom

Baby boom

It’s that time, where everyone is popping babies. And new babies cry for new cute toys 🙂 Yay! That’s right up my alley! I made this ladybug and added a rattle to its belly. My son loves his, so I guess it’s baby approved 🙂 I hope the recipient likes it! It’s made from cotton yarn all pieces are knit/crochet on directly, so that small parts can’t fall off.

Since all my designs started because of babies when I didn’t have one myself I get a much better idea of what the little monsters like now that I have one of my own. If it makes noise and has an exciting texture they simply can’t resist. Although – I must admit – my son would drop anything for a half empty plastic water bottle. Thank you so much for the applause. Well. I guess you can’t have everything. But since all is new to him he will be forgiven.

Now that there are so many new babies around I get way too many ideas of what toy to make next. My list grows longer and longer. If only that package full of extra hands I ordered ages ago would arrive soon!! But at least one new pattern is in progress already, so it’s only 2967986976 more to go. Sigh…

Oh, I almost forgot to show you the socks I started on that plane to Helsingborg. They are long finished (The next pair, too, by the way. I guess I’m spending too much time on transport). Here they are. Can you guess what inspired me? 😛
