Hand Knit for a Baby

I don't do much baby knitting any more, but it is satisfying. The garments knit up quickly, and put it on a baby, and it's instant cute. This little layette is for a baby girl whose parents were really good to me last year when I hit a snag with my book project. The gift had another outfit of organic cotton, and this handmade number, which I think can be mixed and matched with other things. The hat and pants are knit with Baby Cashmerino, which feels so soft. The hat is my own design, nothing complicated, and the pants are a free pattern I found on Alison Hansel's blog. She's doing a ruffled number on an upcoming MagKnits that I'm going to be looking for.
