another baby - another item for a baby girl!

Here is a quick knit - really, really soft yarns by Berocco. Lullaby and Hush. Last I heard, Lullaby was being discontinued, so I was glad to be able to make up a couple of these hats for babies. This color combination is so cute, nice soft green, pink, yellow and blue - could suit both boys and girls. I worked one hat up for display at the shop, even with the one yarn being discontinued :(. The nice thing about these washable yarns, is that they are cool to the touch - not too warm or scratchy for little babies skin. Could be worn year round.

back on the blogger bandwagon!

Oh dear - guess I took quite a break. I've been meaning to participate more in the blogs, but sharing computers at home can be quite a scheduling challenge!

Here are some photos of a baby cardi I worked up for a friend's little girl. Another project I was happy to be using my Denise needle set!

The colors aren't quite as bright in real life. I used Deep Pink and Light Green (lime) for the accent colors - which I think work well with the main shade in Purple. GGH Bali yarn is a DK weight yarn, 50/50 blend cotton and acrylic. I purchased these from someone's "stash sale", and won't elaborate on that experience, but just say I will think carefully about doing that again.

I receive a photo of my friend's daughter wearing this little sweater, and she is picture perfect.
