See! I DO still knit!





My brother and SIL had their first baby (a little girl) a week ago and I knit this sweater and hat for her. They are a little big for a newborn but I was aiming for an autumn set. The ruffled cardigan is a Reynolds pattern that can be purchased from Patternworks. The hat is Miss Dashwood from Knitty.com. The yarn is CottonEase in Sugarplum (embroidered with pineapple, vanilla and pistacio CE.)

I also received more fabric yesterday from Gorgeous Things. I plan to make the following:

Awww, the set is just adorable. Love the sweater embroidery. Really adds a lot. But the red-lipped hat model -- she's gotta go. She's almost scary wearing a kid hat!

Great new fabrics. Which project first?

Hey there, just found your blog and think it is really neat. Can you please tell what type of cutting board/mat you use, the one that's shown under your patterns in this picture?

The set is so cute!! I gotta agree with Debbie though, red lips with baby hats is very scary! ;-)

I bought that same new look pattern!! Bet it looks better on you though! (heck, bet you get it done before I do)

Love the sweater/hat combo!! It's beautiful. The model is a bit scarey! Would love to see the names people would come up with for that!!

Love the color you chose for the set. I just finished up a Miss Dashwood, but it will fit my (unborn) daughter like when she's 2 or 3, so I think I'll knit up another in a smaller size and different yarn. Did you feel your bobbles were "bobbly" enough? I didn't like how mine turned out, but it could be the yarn I chose (Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, instead of the Cash Aran...ooops!)
