More from the 'Baby Shower Tower'

And as promised, here are details of what knitted gifts reside in boxes 1 & 3 of the 'baby shower tower'!

First up are a pair of my gender- neutral felted baby booties. I will be preparing the pattern for these sometime in the near future. For baby boys, I will typically do this same pattern and just use baby blue yarn and accent with little white X's. I also have baby girl felted mary-janes and t-strap booties with flowers. I am thinking of putting these out as a set when I get all the patterns written up.

Finally, in box #3 you will find one of my favorite patterns of all time. You can find it in the ever-popular "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" by Joelle Hoverson. "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" was one of the first knitting books I owned. The patterns are great for beginnings and there are a range of projects to choose from.

The pattern for this bear is very worn in my copy of "Last Minute Knitted Gifts". The pattern is written by Marion Edmonds of Knitting Together NYC. Not only does this pattern include instructions for a teddy bear, but also a bunny rabbit and elephant (and believe me...I have made them all multiple times!). The pattern is named "Lovable Toys"- how fitting!


  1. Those booties and that teddy bear are incredibly desirable. I just want them for me... for fun! "LMKG" is such an awesome book!

  2. Awww, and the sweetness continues! What a fabulous gift.

    (oh, and I'll definitely be snatching up the booties pattern when you get it out!)

  3. Yes... over Christmas I will also be working on getting the slipper pattern ready for girls (my nieces will be in town and they get to be my guinea pigs!).

  4. I attended this shower and saw the mom-to-be open the "baby shower tower." It was fun for all to experience, lots of "oohs" and "aahs" along with comments about the packaging, what a talented knitter, etc. I'm proud to personally know the knitter!!

  5. My husband wanted to have a baby,, but he had an erectil dysfunction problem, so we decided to buy viagra and after that i could be pregnant. All my friend was excited with the new, so they organized an secret baby shower for me. It was wonderful.
