"Darling!" (a mock cable jumper and diaper cover) from Pipsqueak Knits by Jil Eaton. Knit in Berroco Comfort, color 9757. Size 6-12 months, for the Loaf this Fall.
This was so much fun to work on! Really love the soft, stretch fiber and I think our little girl will look lovely in this with her brown hair and blue eyes - assuming she's going to look anything like her siblings! ;-)
"Baby Bolero" from One Skein by Leigh Radford. Knit for baby #3 in Bernat Alpaca, color wheat, size newborn. Has a lovely Eyelet pattern on the center back, but I couldn't get a good shot of it. This is actually the second I've made - it's super quick (2 nights or so) and makes a sweet baby gift.
"Saartje's booties" a free pattern on ravelry.com by Saartje de Bruijn. Knit with Wildflower D.K. by Plymouth Yarn, flower buttons from Hancock Fabrics, size newborn.
I'm new to ravelry, but all I have to say is it ROCKS - definitely go check it out if you're a knitter or crocheter! I loved the double strap on this pattern, for style purposes and security, knowing how easily baby shoes tend to slip off. Can't wait to slip these pale green booties with pink flower buttons on our newborn!
"Provence Baby Cardigan" also a free pattern on ravelry.com by Classic Elite Yarns. Knit in Berroco Pure Pima (cotton), color 2241, size 9-12 months - perfect Spring cardigan for our baby.
I loved this cardigan the moment I first saw it! Something about the leaf panels shown here, worked in delicate, slick, cotton was magic to me.
It hasn't been blocked yet, but I'm really pleased with the way this turned out! I was also pleased to find such perfect buttons to match at Hancock.
I'm really proud of these! They're a version of Saartje's booties modified by yours truly, and the first piece of knitting I've made creative changes to... ever! :) Crocheted up a little flower, sewed it on with a small button for the center and viola! - a darn cute little bootee, if I do say so myself!
Knit with Patons Grace in color Rose and Snow, size newborn.
If you saw the maternity photos in my last post, these are indeed the very same booties from the pictures. I look forward to displaying a picture of our little girl wearing these next to the picture of them resting on my belly.
And, finally, here is a sneak peak of my current work in progress, which also happens to be my first cable project! I won't tell you what it's going to be just yet - but I'm really excited about this one, since it's actually for me! Knit in Patons Classic Merino Wool, color Dark Grey Mix 00225. Loving the challenge and repetition of cables. :)
That's all for now. Aren't you impressed that I've posted again so soon?! I hope you've enjoyed seeing these projects - even if it's only a smidge as much as I enjoyed making them and sharing them with you! :) As always, thanks for letting me ramble, and caring enough to read it all.
