I just finished this little baby layette for a sweet friend who is having a baby any day now. This baby was quite a surprise to everyone since my friend’s next youngest child is fourteen!
Every stitch that went into the sweater was filled with love and happiness for my friend and for the sweet baby girl who will soon be born. I get the pleasure of photographing the baby once she’s here, and I hope I’ll get to share a few images with you.
Despite the fact that I have been knitting for sixteen years (with breaks here and there) I just learned to cable last year. I was always too afraid to try because it looked so complicated. Adalia began to cable, however, and convinced me it wasn’t hard at all. She was right and I’m wondering why I didn’t attempt it earlier!
Now I am working on the sleeves of a sweater for Apollo and knitting up this vest for my niece, Isabella who lives in Alberta. I am taking it on as my personal mission to keep that little girl warm and cozy in hand knits during the long Canadian winters.
Patterns can be found on Ravelry:
The booties are a pattern made up by a very talented friend. She is still perfecting it, so I’m not sure if she is ready to share or not.
Are you working on any fun projects? Leave a comment or post a link, I’d love to see it.
