Reproduction




I've been knitting baby items lately. I like them because they are fast, easy, and cute.
Kinda like me 15 years ago.
My friend Pogo just had the cutest little boy named Tiber and I am working on the baby version of Cobblestone for him. The pattern is Pebble and I'm using Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed in Beanshoot.
I just finished the Umbilical Cord hat for another friend. She has two boys and I am having so much fun knitting and shopping for girlie things for her. I DID NOT KNIT THIS SWEATER! I know. The horror. But I couldn't knit it for the price I bought it. Baby Gap has the best sales area and I got this regularly priced $34.50 sweater for only- drum roll please...
$8.23
Can you believe it was marked down to $10.97 and then had an additional 25% off all sale items ?
It's fully lined with t-shirt material and has a nice smooshiness too it. So I found some pink stash that matched the sweater and knit this hat to go with it. I think I have enough left over to crank out some booties before the baby shower too!

Just had to show off the acorn stitch markers, didn't you? {sigh}

oh, for the love of Pete, how adorable are all those things, including the little acorn stitch markers?!

I adore that the mini-Cobblestone is called *Pebble*, too :)
