Knitted stocking stuffers for babies
Just a few ideas: Soft ball (There are patterns for this on the internet.) Pair of socks (Lots of free patterns for baby socks on the internet) Pair of mittens (Simple shape with no thumbs. Cast on enough stitches to go around baby's wrist, rib for an inch or so, then work even until you're within a half inch of the length of the hand. Decrease 4 stitches evenly over the next few rows, then draw the yarn through remaining stitches and fasten securely. Hat (Again, lots of free patterns for this.) Small sock monkey or other small toy (There are lots of free patterns on the 'net.) Bib (Basically a square with strings on two corners). Blocks (knit 6 blocks the same size and sew them together, stuffing them as you go.
