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!

    What a great stash you’re building for some very lucky babies! I’ve added the patterns to my Ravelry library, and discovered Picchu Picchu, the adult version of the baby girl sweater. Since I already have the button featured (from a button run we made years ago), I figure it’s a good way to use up the button stash, and I just need to shop for the yarn for the sweater. I miss you…

    PS Is the white yarn coming from the WEBs adventure?

      ooooooohhhh, how did I ever miss Picchu-Picchu in the adult version? I just love that sweater pattern and I’ll be perusing my stash to-DAY to find the perfect yarn for it. I do not have the button for it…yet.

      I thought I’d pick up white yarn on our next WEBs adventure together! (hopefully, very soon)

      Missing you, too. It’s awful.

      Thank you, my dear Sarah! I look forward to the day when it’s your turn. (NO pressure…just sayin’)
      Much love, AA
