A woman at my work is having a baby and wanted some hats for when he arrives in August. She wanted something simple in basic colors. She picked out this Blue Sky pattern (which is adorable) and I went to see Hickory at Knitting Etc to see if she had the pattern and a cotton yarn to match. I think cotton is better for babies than the wool that was suggested. I picked out Blue Sky Dyed Cotton (worsted weight) and they just came out adorable. I had some yarn left over to make something for Lily, my new grandniece!!
Yin and Yang, Nostalgia and L’Attitude. I love these simple structured, asymmetrical designs. The designers for these booklets are two of my favorites: Marjory Winter and Norah Gaughan. I picked Gomasio from the Yin and Yang booklet. I used 5 skeins of Lion Brand Cotton-ease in color Indigo. It came out a little big but this cardigan is so comfy!!
Well, there is my summer update. Happy knitting my friends!
Take care, Sue
