Happy Thanksgiving....

I am thankful for my wonderful family....and another gorgeous fall weekend.


And I finished my next baby sweater! I don't seem to find a lot of patterns out there for little boys so I knit this pattern of my own design. I took some features I liked from another cardigan and actually changed quite a lot. I'll be writing out the pattern soon and tweaking a few things and I hope to add some extra sizes. This one is for a 3-6months size baby.... and I loved every minute of it, right down to the barrel buttons. It had minimal sewing and I'm thinking of redoing it from the top down to omit the sewing all together. It has basket weave at the bottom of the sweater, the hood and at the bottom of the sleeves. I used 3-- 50g balls of Sirdar Snuggly DK from my stash. I think this is perfect for the little boy it was made for and can be just as easily suited for a little girl.And once again thank-you to Baillie Bear for stepping up to the plate to model.

Ooh what an adorable baby jacket. I think I have some of that same yarn or something very similar in that color. I cant wait to see the pattern too as I would love to make one up for a friend.

I made one similar to this a little while back. Gotta love those raglan, top down (almost) no sew patterns and they are so versatile. Nice knitting.
