Knitting items for babies is quite satisfying. They are usually simple patterns, that are quick to finish. I like making baby things when I want to make a quick project that will still be quite useful.
I had posted about a few free patterns here and I had the chance to make two of them:
The Owlie Sleep Sack and Owlie Hat:
Yarn: Mary Maxim Mellowspun Solids
Needle Size: U.S. 9 (5.5mm) circs
Pattern Source: Sleep Sack and Hat are both free patterns

I really enjoyed knitting both of these pieces, and the sleep sack was perfect for knitting in class. The stockinette stitch was easy to do and I was able to get it finished quickly.
