I absolutely LOVE this little jacket, Tiered Baby Jacket by the hugely talented Lisa Chemery (aka Frogginette). I just need to find some buttons in my stash that complement the fairy princess look of this adorable little jacket. Then I whipped up a matching hat using Jane Richmond’s Amelia. Ain’t it cute?
There is a major baby boom happening at the office and after the debut of several boys, finally someone is expecting a girl. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I love knitting for girls. Knitting for baby boys can be a challenge since it’s hard to find patterns that are babyish yet manly. Looking at frogginette’s blog reminded me that I’ve got the perfect boy pattern in my library: Baby Sophisticate, a snappy top-down shawl-collared number that can be whipped up in no time. I have some powder blue Needful Yarns Bambini Soft in my stash that would be perfect for it.
