Baby (girl) shower gifts
My nephew and his wife are expecting their first baby in early October. My gift to them included bibs, burp cloths, a taggie blanket and a stuffed fox. What would I do without Pinterest? They seemed to really appreciate the handmade gifts.

Looking for standard sizing
A while back I purchased luxury cashmere silk merino yarn intended for someone’s baby. They had a difficult time staying pregnant and finally three years later are past the stage of worry.

I want to design a long sleeve and long pants onesie or sweater set for a newborn or 0-3 months, since I haven’t found anything online I love. I have designed hats and mittens and changed existing patterns to what I needed but never something so complicated from scratch.

I’m just not sure what size newborn or 0-3 babies are. Is there a resource that tells me how big a chest is, how long sleeves should be etc?

Thank you all for your help

Not sure how to tackle / knit this - please help
Hallo Everyone , I have a project in/on my mind which would involve to knit a rounded longer than front "shirt style back" .
My Question : Is it possible to cast on all the required stitches in rib and then do partial knitting ? OR ... do I start with partial knitting and increase till I have all the stitches on the machine - knit the rest of the back and after completion pick up stitches to do the rib ...OR - knit a separate piece and attach it later ? What is the best way to go about this ?
From my experience with all you so talented KP friends there must be help coming my way - Thanks 🙏 all ready in advance ,Ose

Interchangeable needle advice needed
Need advice on what may be my best option or help finding a resource for additional cords to Tulip Carry C interchangeable
Looking for guidance and advice
When I first started knitting, by sheer luck (right time, right place) I bought my Tulip Carry C interchangeable needle set on sale. I LOVE LOVE LOVE working with them. I didn’t realize until recently how great the price was.
Last week Walmart online had the Carry C long needle set on sale for $100 (double what I paid for the first set at AC MOORE) but in my mind I thought “great a full backup set with sharp point needles and extra cords. When it arrived I looked at the set and thought “Am I crazy? $100? It would be great to have a backup since Carry C sets are expensive and hard to find. But I really only need cords?”

So fellow KPrs does anyone know either where I can buy cables for Tulip Carry C interchangeables, have a set they don’t use or don’t like and will sell inexpensively, or does it make sense to rejoice in the sale price and keep the new set. I need someone to say yea or nay on this impulse buy. Thanks so much
