Baby's Here and Onesie is Done

Baby Riley was born last Saturday, May 30, at 3:30 p.m. And I think it was two days later that I finished knitting this onesie I've been working on. It's a size 0-3 months, but I think it will be closer to the 3 month age before it will fit her.
I used "Peter Pan" double knit yarn, soft blend. It's part nylon and part acrylic and feels so nice. I used a size 3 needle and since I don't knit that fast it took a little while.
I've started little booties that will match and then they will button onto the cuffs so that they don't fall off.
I hope it fits eventually. If not, I'll frame it just because it's so cute.
Check out the baby pictures on my other site.


  1. You did a wonderful job! I am really impressed.

  2. Oooo! I had to look at a close-up! It's beautiful! I love the colors you chose. Hopefully it will become a family heirloom.

  3. Hi Nina:
    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving your kind comment! It is so nice to meet a new blogging friend... I love the onesie you made....what fabulous workmanship. Riley will look so cute! I will be back to visit again soon.

    Stay Cozy, Carrie

  4. I've got to tell you, Nina...I just read your profile and you sound so much like me. I don't have any grandchildren yet...but I too like to be known as a nurturer and I am organized too! I get much joy from making our home be the soft place for everyone to land. My husband and I will have been married 29 years this August, too! I have a niece, Riley and my maiden name is actually Landens yet, haha. See you soon...Carrie

  5. Nina,
    That is just too cute, I love those colors.

  6. You're very talented! So cute! I have a five year old grandson and six month old granddaughter. Both I don't get to see very often. Live too far away!
