Yes, I've been knitting! Good thing, too. The year o' baby knits has officially commenced. We are lucky to know a few moms-to-be this year. This suits me fine, as there isn't much I enjoy knitting more than baby gear! This set is for B's cousin's baby, born just last week.
You know me, I love shoes no matter how tiny, so I couldn't resist knitting a pair of booties. For a change of pace, I decided to steer away from the old stand-by and test drive a new bootie pattern.
Pattern: Boy's and Girl's Booties from Natural Knits for Babies and Moms by Louisa Harding
Yarn: Pakucho Organic Cotton in Chocolate - less than 1 skein for both booties
These are so cute and I like that it has the drawstring around the ankle for added security (theoretically - I'll have to get back to you on that).
And far be it from me to cover a person's feet without regard for their head, so here's to another favorite accessory of mine- hats! I whipped up this little thing in no time. I just love the stripes!
Pattern: Beanie Hat from Natural Knits for Babies and Moms by Louisa Harding
Yarn: Pakucho Organic Cotton in Natural and Chocolate- less than 1 skein of each
Needles: US5 and US7
This was my first time working with the Pakucho, but it won't be my last. It's a really good cotton yarn, and of course I love that it's organic.
I'm sorry, but I am a sucker for cute, little baby knits. I may have found my calling...
