latte

Yesterday whilst on a little school field trip, r.r. and I stopped into dwelltime, this pour over coffee bar in cambridge. Let me tell you: that brew was incredible, albeit the entire experience was a bit intimidating even for this coffee devotee. Above pictured is r.r.’s gorgeous latte, which for a very pregnant lady, was a welcome welcome dose of yes.

I made this odd bodd by Donna Wilson for my friend r.r.’s first baby, due any day now. Minus the labor intensiveness of mirroring the colorwork and carrying multiple small balls of yarn to create the spots, it was worth it for its finished product. I think, technically speaking, he’s a “cat” in the book, but I call him a dog, so dog he is.

Abernathy sweater knit for my nephew, Tyler. I used the gorgeous Plucky Knitter Merino Lite sport weight yarn in a grayish colorway; this yarn, to die for. The old man half collar is so cute and easy to create with short row shaping. A brilliant pattern, easy to follow, and looks far more complicated than it is. A sure crowd pleaser if you have a baby in need of clothing.
