Lots of little knits

I have finished a lot of projects over the past few months, as well as one new design that I named The Diamond Panel Pullover.
It is knit in the round from the bottom up with the only grafting done under the arms.  A simple lace panel is placed on the center front.  
I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca in the photo shown.
The pattern can be found in the Pattern Store section of this blog, on Ravelry & on Craftsy.

I also just recently went to a baby shower.  Not just any baby shower, but the shower honoring my amazing Sister-in-Law who will be having her first baby this summer.  This will be my first niece or nephew & I couldn't be more excited! Knitting for a baby who's gender is unknown can be kind of tricky.  
We have a large Irish family, so the first project came easy.

A gender neutral Irish sweater!
Yarn: Berroco Ultra Alpaca.
Pattern: Aran Pullover by, Melanie Falick & Kristin Nicholas.

These buttons with clovers couldn't be more perfect.

Another great thing to knit for a boy or a girl is a stuffed animal.

The elephant head, ears, arms & legs were made following Susan B. Anderson's Lion & Elephant from her book Itty Bitty Knits.  The pattern is for a reversible toy, but I only wanted the elephant portion.  I made the body from a  ball pattern included in the same book.

Lastly, this baby needed a hat.  I whipped up a simple beanie & embroidered a single pea in a pea pod.

Still, there were 2 more babies to knit for.  A very special co-worker is about to have twins.  One boy, one girl.  This called for two peas in a pod.
