I don’t know about you but it seems like a lot of people are pregnant around me these days. I’m not complaining; it’s plenty of opportunity to whip up some quick knitting for the sprogs.
Of course I’m a certified aunty so I don’t have any of my own but as I’m sure a lot of you do, here are some of my favourite ridiculously adorable instant gratification baby knits I’ve found.

The owl knit trend is huge. It’s been around nearly as long as I’ve been knitting and with hats like this I can see why. Just imagine how cute this would be with little embroidered eyes! No buttons of course – that’s a choking hazard.
See, I know some baby stuff. Honest.

I don’t know what makes these slippers magic but don’t you want to find out?
These only take under 200 yards of fingering weight yarn so they would be a perfect way to use up scraps of leftover socks. And they’re magic. Gotta love magic slippers.

I don’t even know what these are but I still want to make fifty of them.

If you’re feeling a little more ambitious, try out this pattern. It’s adorable and yet it still only uses less than 200 yards of DK yarn. It will knit up in no time and you’ll be left with a very snuggly baby if you use plush yarn.
Okay. That’s the babies decked out in the best of hand knitted items. Feel free to share your own, I’d love to see other ideas for quick baby knits!
