There has been news of two new little ones that will be joining our family in October and December. Yea!! Since neither mom will know whether they’re having a boy or a girl, I thought I’d better get things started!
First up, I found this pattern (called Burnett) on Ravelry:
The yarn is Jeannee, from Plymouth Yarns. It is a soft cotton/acrylic blend which is machine washable and dryable, making it perfect for babies. It comes in solid colors, too, but I just couldn’t resist this blue variegated combo.
Next, another pattern from Ravelry:
This one is called Baby Picchu and I think it’s such a sweet, contemporary-style pattern. The yarn is Schulana cotton-merino 90 and, since I’ve had it in my stash for a while, I’m not sure if it’s still available. Any worsted weight yarn (cotton or other) would work up just as beautifully.
Here’s a matching hat:
Another pattern from (you guessed it) Ravelry. It’s called the Lilly Hat, and it works up in a breeze.
I’m planning on knitting a couple of snowy white, unisex, baby sweaters soon because I can see that this “we don’t wanna know what it is” trend is here to stay.
Looking forward to happy surprises ahead!
