Because every baby needs a ninja suit!

I stayed up past my bed time to get it done, but baby got his clothes....
... yep a ninja suit!

Okay - here's the story. This is for the soon-to-be-born baby of a former co-worker. He was one of the few people I really liked at the last job, so when I found out his wife was pregnant - I knew I had to knit something, even though we no longer work together.

When I found out they were decorating the nursery with a ninja theme... I knew what I had to knit!

I couldn't find a ninja pattern I liked - so I settled for a baby doll pattern and a hoodie pattern I could modify. All in all, I'm pleased with the result!

And the parents-to-be were too! We went out for dinner tonight and they were so surprised. Incidentally if the baby is a girl, they are going to name it Valerie - not after me, they just like the name - but it's still cool.

Now - I've got some serious sock knitting to do....

Heee! My first thought when I saw the pic was, Ninja! So the outfit is well done. And only seriously cool parents could come up with such a nursery theme.
