f.o. | baby hats + socks.

Some little Purl Bee baby knits for an old friend that recently had her second child. This is the garter stitch baby hat and the baby socks from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Purl Bee has the best patterns for babies. Simple, gender neutral, soft, adorable, tiny. They are my go to source and I tendContinue reading “f.o. | baby hats + socks.”

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.”

f.o. | purl soho baby sweater.

For a colleague’s impending girl. I loved knitting this one. The details were so interesting and the construction was impeccable. The Little Baby Sweater by Purl Soho is knit from the bottom up, you create a squared set it sleeve later using pick ups and cable cast ons–so fun! I’ve never knit a sweater thisContinue reading “f.o. | purl soho baby sweater.”

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. | elwood.

One of my coworkers is having her first child in a few short weeks. I’ve always loved the idea of babies in cardigans usually reserved for grandpas. So, I knit her newest bundle–a boy–an Elwood cardigan by Jenny Wiebe. I love everything about this pattern–the stripes, the shawl collar created with short row shaping, howContinue reading “f.o. | elwood.”

clayoquot baby.

I really love the way this version of Tin Can Knits Clayoquot hat came out–and I intend to gift it to my sister in law for my nephew. It’s knit up using Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage (superb for kids because you can throw it in the washing machine and its a pretty durable yarn) in whiskersContinue reading “clayoquot baby.”

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.”

garter stripes.

My new obsession: this baby hat by Purl Bee.  I did a few slight modifications for this hat, which will be gifted to a friend and future child. I’m in love with how fun these can get. This was knit up using Madelinetosh Tosh Merino in the thyme colorway for the contrasting stripe and MalabrigoContinue reading “garter stripes.”

frosted alpine x 3.

This is the third Frosted Alpine hat by Tanis Lavallee that I have completed. I love this hat more than any other baby hat I’ve made because it is perfect for a newborn, a toddler, and quite frankly, I’m thinking about making the adult version for my guy. It’s so versatile and quick. I canContinue reading “frosted alpine x 3.”

frosted alpine.

Baby knits are so quick and so satisfying. Last night, I whipped up this adorable little earflap hat, called Frosted Alpine, designed by the always incredible Tanis Lavallee. These hats make great stash buster projects, too, because they only use a little bit of yardage, and the color combinations are endless. I love to useContinue reading “frosted alpine.”

baby socks.

A quick 40-minute knit from Joelle Hoverson’s More Last Minute Knitted Gifts. These baby socks were knit up using a bit of Tanis Fiber Arts Green Label Aran Weight in the chris gray color way I had laying left over in my stash from another baby project. It’s so gorgeous and soft–buttery almost–that it makesContinue reading “baby socks.”
