In case you forgot, a bit ago I posted a picture of M. being the world’s most unenthusiastic knitwear model. Well, I have good news! He has finally accepted his destiny, and is becoming a bit more enthusiastic about modelling his knitwear.
Miles was very comfy cozy today on our excursions – it’s been quite windy and nippy lately – and the cardigan has stood up well to the buckets of drool he’s been producing lately.
And after said droolmeister went to bed this evening, I managed to see on the finishing touches to the Little Coffee Bean CardiganI made for a expecting friend of mine. It’s adorable, and I’m very tempted to make another one.
I knit it with Sugar Bush Yarns Crisp, which is currently my absolute favourite worsted yarn for baby knits. It’s incredibly soft, machine washable and is a decent yardage for the price. I can’t wait to see her little one in it!
With Christmas coming, it’s been a bit hard to tame my baby knitting urges until all my Christmas knitting is done, and I’ve been pretty resistant to the urge…well, mostly.
I gave in to this sweet little cardigan, appropriately called Sweet Bunting by Laura Chau. I knit this one in Malabrigo Arroyo with scraps of Sweet Georgia Superwash Sport and Cascade 220 Superwash Sport, because if there’s anything I know already it’s that anything for a baby should be superwash.
Luckily though I’ve still been able to bust through my Christmas knit list and am one sleeve away from the lot. Woo hoo! I’m so behind from last year but, well, shit happens. I’d show you some of the finished results but, well, they’re all wrapped already. At least that’s SOMETHING I’m on top of!
I’ve got a new knitting recipient to knit for, and I’m excited to say they’re going to belong all to me…and Husband. Yes! I’m pregnant! And Baby S. is expected to arrive sometime around the end of May.
This will be our first baby, and the thought of getting to knit so many little knits for a wee little babe all my own is SO EXCITING! I’ve already got a blanket on the needles, another sweater, yarn on standby for another sweater and booties. Eeeeeeeeee!
