Knitting Knitting Knitting

I am finally getting my knitting mojo back. Having holiday bazaars and baby gifts to knit is very helpful. I have a friend who is expecting twins. She had sent me a picture of some newborn elf looking hats and was wondering if it was something I would be able to make. The photograph was crochet but I did find a comparable knitting pattern. They turned out so incredibly cute! I wish I would have thought to knit one of these for Hannah when she was a newborn.

There were also pants that she had found pictures of online here. Thankfully there was a free pattern on Ravelry (found here) that was for the most part exactly the same I just needed to stitch the eyes differently and my pants didn't have as many stripes on the legs.

The sock monkey pants were knit exactly the same I just had to leave off double stitching the teeth on and made the eyes per the example.

I have already cast on a pair for Hannah to keep for herself.

I'm lovin' those monster pants. I really wanted a pair for Xave but never had the time or talent. Your work is awesome!
