I recently attended a baby shower for my cousin and I went a little overboard with the knitting….
It’s so nice to knit up baby things and it is especially great in the teeny tiny sizes, Hunter is getting too big! I was even more enthusiastic to knit teeny tiny things to a fellow crafter (Mummy to be is a sewer/sewist). First I finished the Puerperium Cardigan, possibly the most tiny adorable thing I’ve ever knit. I dubbed this one Peanut Butter Cup for obvious reasons.
Then I thought, let’s get nuts! A while ago Ann sent me this link to an adorable grampa cardigan knit up in Madelinetosh Merino DK colourway Plaid Blanket. I had a copycat moment in which I had to knit it!
It seemed that the 2 cardigans were not quite a complete package though so I added some booties (pattern forthcoming in our next books!) and a Hunter Hat (Hutner insisted I put it in).
All four knits went over quite well at gift opening time and I can’t wait to see them on the new one in January!
