Knitted Stocking Cap

I needed a quick-knit to go along with a sweet, navy blue, Ralph Lauren winter snowsuit that I was presenting as a baby shower gift.  Since newborns photographed in stocking caps are all over Pinterest, I thought this pattern would be a great choice.   It’s in the book Itty Bitty Hats by Susan B. […]

Cozy Cocoons for Baby

Pinterest is bursting with photos of precious newborns, sleeping soundly, wrapped in soft, cuddly cocoons.  Knitted or crocheted, these little sacques are an adorable way to keep baby warm and snuggled.  This pattern is called “Angel Cocoon Set” in the book Annie’s Attic #871046, Cuddle Cocoons.  However, you can find it at Ravelry under “Roses and […]

Christina’s Cardigan

Christina is my dear, sweet 8 month-old niece who has a smile that lights up a room and warms your heart.  I held her on my lap recently and, as our eyes locked, I could “hear” her say, “won’t you please knit me a purple sweater?”  Your wish is my command, Christina. The pattern is […]

Newborn Cardigan for Sweet Baby Norah

I found the pattern in Knitting Just for Baby (Precious baby set) and the yarn is called Baby Alpaca D.K. Paint from Plymouth yarn.  Variegated yarns are […]

Cascading Colors – a sweet baby blanket

The pattern is called “Cascading Colors Baby Blankie“, and the instructions and materials list can be found on the Lion Brand website.  It knits up very quickly because you hold two yarns together and use size 17 […]

Knit for Baby – Cotton Cardigan

I went to a baby shower today!  The daughter of a very special friend is expecting her first child in February and, keeping true to the trend, the expectant parents are choosing to be surprised.  Wonderful, really.  Unless, like me, you like to knit baby sweaters in pink or blue…so, white it is. Debbie Bliss […]

Baby Love II

Back in June, I blogged about my hairdresser’s pregnancy with her first baby.  Quick recap:  She and her husband chose to be surprised by the baby’s sex.  She had a premonition that the baby was a girl.  And a dream of her “passed-on” grandma told of a girl…..remember?  I knitted a pretty pink blanket because […]

Christmas in July

My sister-in-law, Linda, once told me that Christmas is like a part-time job.  There is always so much to do, that I have to agree.  Although a chorus of “Dominick the Donkey” can lift my mood and put me in the holiday spirit, I get totally stressed by thoughts of gift-giving, decorating, baking, handmade gifts, […]
