Oh baby!

2012 might go down as the year of the baby. Every time I turn around, another one of our friends or family are expecting. It’s keeping my knitting needles VERY busy.

You’ve already seen one of the baby blankets I knit this year.

Back in January I finished another baby blanket for a dear Ravelry friend. She was due in April, but her baby girl decided to be contrary and arrived in early February. She’s doing well now and slated to come home in just a few weeks, but I was relieved to have finished the blanket to send ahead. The pattern is from Mason Dixon Knitting and used up a variety of easy care yarns I had in the stash. Mama wanted bright colors and I think this fits the bill!

This week I’m attending a baby shower for a coworker who is expecting her first, a little boy, in April as well. We don’t know each other super well, but we do work together and I do love knitting wee things, so I decided to make her a baby sweater. I jumped on the bandwagon and used the  Puerperium Cardigan pattern that the Yarn Harlot raved about a few months ago.  I had two balls of a beautiful blue DK silk merino that is so soft and squishy and perfect for baby. A quick trip through the etsy shop of my favorite Israeli button vendor and I was set.

I really think the buttons make the cardigan:

Now I’m getting to work on the June baby gifts (two!) followed by the August babies (three more)!

    Love them both! But, the Missoni one really is my very favorite. These are some lucky babies!

    We still have the blanket you made Ahad. It’s one of the most thoughtful gifts we’ve received.
