Newborn photo session pictures

Finally some newborn photo props which I made have started working. I'm very happy to see these pictures, and especially the one with the Giraffe set. 
I really appreciate the photographer's skills, she makes it great the colors and the composition itself, handling with this sweet sleeping munchkin. 
If you are interested to see more of her work here is her site http://www.russianvisionstudio.com/

Woolen vest and a hat for the boy

Well, just thought of knitting a vest for my son, because we will be travelling quite much at the end of the year. As long as it's not very cold at the places we are gong to, I decided to make a vest instead of pullover. It will be quite handy for travelling in the train or bus with air conditioning, he will not feel too hot, but it will keep him warm enough, coz it's woolen. It's been made according to DROPS design.

And here is the hat. The instruction was also taken from DROPS design site.

And this is a picture with my first sleeping sack I made when I was pregnant. We could not use it as it was not cold...so decided to make a picture while it's more or less fitting to him.

Naval Sling necklace

One additional accessory for my sling is ready. 
There are actually many names for this necklace: sling necklace, Mommy's necklace, nursing necklace and feeding necklace. It is quite multi functional. It keeps the baby busy. It is really good in gums scratching and also helps the baby to differentiate colors, sizes, shapes, textures, as long as some crochet creatures on it :). 
It's very helpful when you are walking with the baby or attending some public places.
And finally it's a great and beautiful accessory.

Unfortunately, the weather was so dull here and rainy, so it effected my photos: they came out a bit dark and dull too.

So I have chosen a sea theme, and here is how it looks like.

Mermaid set for a little princess

I've got a small break from my endless projects for the order of a Mermaid set.
This time I had a different and a bit more complicated approach to make the tail. 
I chose a pattern with the shell stitches, so that it looks like a fish scales. And I started my work from the top with the ridged rib pattern, then cast on stitches for the main pattern. For that I took some idea from here.
And here is the pattern.

Ring sling

This time it's neither crochet nor knitting, but simple stitching. I made this sling long time ago, but have happened to use it just recently when I needed my hands to be free, and my boy was so impatient that he could not see how I was moving here and there without him in my hands.
I don't want to describe how I made it and all the dimensions, I will just say that I got these special rings from Russia. They are very durable and can bear up to 120 kg of weight: so your back will brake but not the rings :))) Any useful information can be found by the following links.

It really helped me and my boy enjoyed because he could witness and control everything what mom was doing.

I know my mom needs my help. That's why I'm always with her and ready to make any advise and cheer her up!

Now she can do everything much faster, coz she has four hands. I am so eager to take part in all adult matters!

If it was not for me, how mom could cope with all the house chores. I can help nonstop!

Rainbow dachshund

Here I found a very nice tutorial for a funny dog and immediately decided to make the same toy for my boy.
As of now it is difficult for him to understand what that creature is!

Brothers elephants

Two more toys for my baby. He is growing very fast and already started grabbing things, and my toys have become the objects for his attention. 
Here are the links I used to make toys though again I had to make some changes.


This is the power flower elephant. With such a long trunk it can sniff in any flower.

 And a rainbow elephant. Looks a bit down.

Baby socks

In India it's still winter season, so I decided to knit socks for my 1 month boy to keep his legs warm and comfortable, provided he doesn't allow to wrap and cover him properly in any wraps.
