Ooh, baby! Hope you guys had lovely weekends! Mine was packed with family festivities, including a baby shower for my cousin! It’s her first baby, a little girl due on Christmas Day, but in one of those unpredictable baby surprises, Miss A decided to come 7 weeks early! Both the ladies are doing well, although we didn’t get to see the wee one (she can’t be in contact with other people for 2 months).
I knitted a little sweater for the lady:
The pattern is Baby Kina, and I used Debbie Bliss Ecobaby Fair Trade yarn. It was a quick and easy knit (and not just because it’s so tiny!). It’s simple to do, although the instructions are fairly minimal and assume that you have a fair amount of experience, so if this is one of your first projects you may need to have a beginner’s knitting manual nearby.
I discovered a lovely yarn store in my hometown that’s popped up since I moved away, Sheep’s Clothing, and was pleasantly surprised by their massive selection of yarn, needles, and patterns. I picked up the buttons there– aren’t they sweet?
How many of you guys are knitters? If you’re not, is it something you’re at all interested in?
How are your projects coming along? Diving into your holiday gift-making yet?
