f.o. | elwood baby.

Pattern Details: Elwood by Jenny Wiebe Yarn: Malabrigo Rios (main color: Azul Profundo ; contrasting color: Glazed Carrot. approx. 630 yards total) This is the second Elwood I have knit this spring. The first time around, it was for a colleague having her first kid. This time, it’s for my third nephew, who was born lastContinue reading “f.o. | elwood baby.”

f.o. | camilla babe.

I have been wanting to knit a Camilla Babe by Carrie Bostick Hoge for awhile now–but everyone I would knit for with child had boys or live in deserts, and while I’m very much anti gender specific colors or clothes, this feather and fan lace detail on the front, no matter in what yarn, felt too feminineContinue reading “f.o. | camilla babe.”

baby knits | purl soho essentials.

I adore Purl Soho patterns–particularly their baby knits, which I’ve made a million times over for the impending bundles in my life. I can’t tell you how many pairs of baby mocs I’ve made–and I always gift them with the garter ear flap hat because I think they go nicely together and can be knit up inContinue reading “baby knits | purl soho essentials.”

f.o. | baby mocs.

I made these Purl Bee teeny, tiny little baby mocs for Sean’s newest niece, Sadie. I’ve made a whole bunch of pairs of these in the past (and here), which are more like baby socks than structured booties, which is why I like them so much. Quite frankly, I haven’t met a Purl Bee pattern yetContinue reading “f.o. | baby mocs.”

pop.

To match that Purl Bee garter flap had I knit the other day. I decided to use my favorite baby sock pattern–Joelle Hoverson’s baby socks from More Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I’ve used it in the past to great results. This time around, I wanted the socks to not just match the hat, but IContinue reading “pop.”

schoolboy vest no. 2.

I made another School Boy vest by the incredible Tanis Lavallee for my friend r.r., who is about to have her second child. Unlike the first one I made, I decided to do the modified version with the scallop edging on the bottom and I love the way it turned out. This vest seems likeContinue reading “schoolboy vest no. 2.”

dawn’s peasy, 9.28

A Presto Chango Cardigan for Dawn’s new bundle, in a gorgeous Alpaca wool in a turquoise blue. This is the third Presto I’ve made–I think the fully removable front panel is perfect for a Mum struggling with many over the head clothes. If you’re looking for a baby knit that looks fancier than the workContinue reading “dawn’s peasy, 9.28”
