yep, it's pretty much all baby, all the time around here. especially when gorgeous strangers send you mystery packages containing handmade bibs in stunning fabrics out of the blue.
thank you again so much, psaltis - everything is beautiful, so thoughtful, and will be put to good use : )
i seem to be bitten by the knitting bug once again, in part because of a few recent minor sewing disasters and in part because i can do it with houseguests around (while they enjoy countless bottles of micro brewery beer, delicious smelling wines and soft, luxurious cheeses. boo). with two concurrent weekends in bendigo starting tonight, i've been scanning the internet for free, simple baby sweater (jumper) patterns that i can attempt while i'm away from my sewing room. here are some links for anyone else who might be on the same, single minded wavelength:
• Berocco Cutie Patootie (has crochetted edges)
• Knitty Haiku
• Baby Cardi
• Yarnsticks Hooded Baby Cardigan
• Knitty Daisy
• Yoked Quick Easy Baby Sweater Pattern
• Baby Cardigan Pattern
• Baby's First Sweater
• Baby-Bees Sweater Pattern
• Raglan Baby Sweater with Collar
• Garter Stitch Baby Cardigan
and last, but not least i have finally, finally popped a couple of the vintage pieced windsees into my handmade shop, along with a couple of oobees that i found languishing in a box when i unpacked my craft room.
i also put a few more housewares into the onegirl gathers vintage shop with plenty more to add over the next few weeks!
