Kayla is a crocheter. She does a wonderful work and makes lots of great baby afghans. Back when Kalissa was pregnant with Carver, Kayla debated and debated about what to make Carver for a afghan. One day she came home and was working a charity afghan. Kalissa saw what she was working on and said she loved it. Kayla was a little taken aback. It wasn’t fancy. It wasn’t planned and wonderful. It was just a simple stitch with simple yarn and a simple pattern.
Kayla ended up gifting it to Carver. Here she is with baby Carver and the afghan.
Fast forward two and half years….the afghan has been given the name “Bit”. Carver started calling it Bit and since then, we all call it Bit. Bit has gotten to be very important to Carver. He LOVES Bit. See in the photo below…Bit is with us.
This time around when Kalissa was pregnant, again, Kayla debated on what to make for the new baby. This time it was a little easier. She knew what style Kalissa liked. So here is baby Gannon with his new Bit.
Kayla made the new Bit a little smaller. Carver’s Bit has turned into being more of a tag along than anything that keeps him warm so Kayla was thinking to make it smaller as it would be easier to drag along.
It’s log cabin style and super cute. She put loops on the corners so they can be looped together and make a little tote. It’s cute!!
Here’s Kayla with Gannon and his Bit.
If you read the title of the post, you see it said “Tiny Baby’s Bit”. Well…Gannon is called Tiny Baby. This happened some time ago. He kept calling the baby, while it was in vitro, Baby. Well at childcare the baby that we have here is 7 months old and doing MUCH more than a newborn. I didn’t want Carver to get the impression that his new baby would be that mobile so while at a wedding there were a couple newborns there so I started calling them “tiny” babies. From there it kind of stuck….so Gannon has been called “Tiny Baby” for some time. We call him Gannon (or Gavin when I’m in a hurry- AH! I get so crabby with myself when I do) but he still gets called Tiny Baby quite a bit too.
Here’s the two of them at naptime at their house with their bits.
Anyway…now two boys have Bits lovingly made my Auntie Kayla. We’re all curious to see if Gannon love his Bit as much as Carver loves his.
