First up is the Baby Swap. Since I love babies, and I love gnome hats...that's what I made! I had some gorgeous Rowan bulky wool and some Bolero wool, so these knit up quickly...
I made the hostess a small aviator bonnet since she was due with her baby soon. These caps fit newborns so sweetly!
Don't mind the dingy photos below. I had to take the pictures at night since I planned on using some of these as Christmas gifts and I have quite a few nosy little girls wandering around all day!
Here's what we got in exchange:
Knit teether/rattle by Claudia B.
Knit eggplant by Deb N.
Doll/rattle by Priscilla M.
Felt baby toy cube by Lacey G.
Linen/cotton tag blankie by Kelly O.
Next up was the Bath Swap. I knit these soap holders. I always prefer solid soap in the bath/shower, but hate it when it gets set down on the tub edge or the counter. These knit bags remind the girls (and Daddy) that the soap has a home of its own to go to when you're done with it.
Here's the bath time goodness we got back in return:
A bathmit and a washcloth.
These were both made by the talented Kelly O.
A sweet set of bath salts and a matching washcloth, untagged (don't know who made it!).
A felted soap, we just love the cloud and rain drops design (untagged).
How about you? Have you participated in any swaps lately?
