For anyone who has been visiting my blog awhile, it comes as no surprise that a new Baby Boy is on the way... Brother to Little Man, whose Momma is my daughter, Amanda. He is due to make our aquaintance June 11 of this year. It's getting high time his Noni got busy on a welcome-and-be-wrapped-in-love gift of his very own.
This beautiful organic cotton yarn came in the mail yesterday and, at the very last tail-end of the day, I cast on the first stitches of what will become a tiny nightgown for Baby Boy.
Last week at Rose Path, my friend Laura showed me a new book that hadn't even been checked in to the store yet. It is Natural Nursery Knits by Erika Knight. I fell in love with this little gown! I had been looking for a pattern for Baby Boy with no luck; then, thanks to Laura, there was this one!
Help needed: Rose Path did not stock the exact yarn called for in the pattern, so I thought I might use this cashmerino. After making a start on it, I realized it just wasn't turning out like I wanted: ergo, the order of Rowan Organic 4-ply Cotton. So, I have a nice stash of this beautiful blue cashmerino. If any of you knitters out there have done a project with the Debbie Bliss yarn that you loved, please pass that information on to me. I have to find another new project. =) Like I need one more! I have three knitting projects and one crochet shawl on the needles now!
This is the sunflower a.k.a. Ides of March Project to date. I was only able to work on it Tuesday and this is as far as I got. I think I am really going to like it (if I don't pass the point of no return! LOL!)
This.... well, I stole it off my daughter's blog which is private. I do miss my angels... and soon there will be one more! XOXOXOX
Now, back to work!! Hope you all have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!
