Well, hello! How is everyone? As you may have guessed, things have been pretty crazy around here. It’s hard to believe that it has been months since I’ve last posted…to say that I’ve missed being a part of the knitting community is a huge understatement. It feels good to be back.

My dear readers, we have quite a bit to catch up on, so I will start with this sweet little baby sweater:

I mean, how cute is this? This sweet grandpa-sweater was gifted to a lovely co-worker of mine expecting her first little boy. The yarn is a heathered cotton-wool, which will be the perfect weight for those first damp, chilly weeks of spring. I was a sucker for the garter-stitch shawl collar:

And the cozy, garter-stitch cuffs:

While in my local knitting store, I happened upon the cutest little wooden twig buttons. They add a charmingly-rustic touch, don’t you think?

Here are the details:

  • Pattern: Baby Sophisticate by Linden Down
  • Yarn: Coast by Tahki Yarns in #005 Fog (2 skeins)
  • Needles: Size US 7 needles, 24″ circulars and set of 4 dpns.

This knit up very quickly, over the course of a few wintry afternoons. It’s the perfect little boy sweater.

{Thanks to Alana for the sweet inspiration!}

Sorry about the long absence…I had a week of kid-free bliss and went offline to knit, bake and have a few dinner-and-a-movie dates with my sweet husband.  And just in case you are wondering, yes, the gray sweater is finally off of the needles.  Tonight it will be blocked and then all that’s left will be sewing it all together.  I can’t wait!

Also, tomorrow I am going to cast on a little baby sweater, knit top-down and seamless – inspired by Alicia’s sweet version, seen here.  Her blog, Posie Gets Cozy is pretty fun to read – she makes the most beautiful knitwear and dresses for children; and she quilts, too!   Have a great week, all. ~J
