Cabled Baby Beanie

Hello Everyone!

I have been working on a few odds and ends around the house, but none that I  am ready to show you...yet.

In the meantime I thought I would post yet another knit project. I love knitted cables and being a new knitter I wanted a chance to practice it. I found a free pattern at Sweater Babe. She even gives a pattern for a doll beanie to match. I haven't been able to do that one yet, but I hope to. This beanie is for yet another friend that just had a baby girl. Two different co-workers in case you are keeping track of my knitting. I also have some requests for boy beanies so stay tuned for those. Anyway here is the finished beanie.

I am really happy with how it turned out. I am not crazy about the edge, but apparently I can change my cast on method to fix that. This yarn is by Caron and it is called Neopolitan.

I hope to do a cabled baby blanket soon as well. Debbie Bliss has a nice pattern in one of her books.

Thanks for stopping by!

Knitted Baby Sweater

Hello Everyone! I have another knit project to share with you. I am a new knitter and I tend to get a little obsessed with something when I am learning about it. Plus I have another friend that is having a baby girl. I decided to finish the neopolitan yarn I used for my other baby projects, since this friend is also using pink and brown. I wanted to try my hand at something a little more difficult so I used a pattern from Debbie Bliss. She has several great books with beautiful designs and she has her own yarn too. I found this pattern on Ravelry for free if you would like to knit this Ribbed Baby Jacket. And you can find more great patterns in her book called Special Knits.

Here is my inspiration picture.

And here is my version.

I don't have a cute little baby to model it for me, but I think it came out pretty good. I hope she likes it!

Thanks for stopping by!
