There’s a baby boom goin’ on over here in Chic World! Lots and lots of my friends and family are having babies. Usually, I’m too lame to get a knitted item together but when my friend L had her handsome boy a couple of weeks ago, I just had to go a little crazy.

“The Baby Owner’s Manual”: this tome is actually written by an MD, but in a very tongue-in-cheek way that is hilarious. AND, it has really rockin’ fine graphic design throughout. The new Mommy is a creative and will dig that, along with the fun hints… I hope. :)

Scrappy DOO: in the middle right corner of the picture above you see a little 6″ stuffed toy. He is a knitted Scrappy Doo, the nephew of my fave, Scooby Doo. I have some washable wool (the only one I really like, Filatura 501) to make a pal for the new baby boy! I hope I can unhook my selfish heart for the few minutes it will take to wrap it and actually manage to give it away when it’s finished. I LOVE THIS TOY! The UK pattern is from the time of the first incarnation of the SDoo cartoons and is out-of-print. I found it on eBay a couple of years ago.

I’ve seen lots of knitted toy success online (remember the ZooAlong?) and darnit, I hope I make those tiny legs right!
