for sarah’s baby

Posted on August 20th, 2012 by mountain girl  |  3 Comments »

My baby sister is having a baby! Sarah’s little girl is due in early November–the 4th in our tribe of little cousins. I couldn’t make her shower Saturday (since it was on the other side of the country) but I sent this little hat and sweater. Hopefully it will help keep baby girl cozy during her first New York winter.

I used the Children’s Cotton Hat pattern from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts and the Easy Baby Cardigan from More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.  Although I’ve really slowed down my knitting this summer, these little projects were just right to tackle between 3rd trimester naps.

I’m sure I’ll pick up the needles when I actually have hands again. Right now they are almost exclusively filled with Cash (the boy, not the bills) and my little redhead girl has second dibs. Knitting needles are waaaay down the line.

    Don’t you just love those books?! Your knitted goodies turned out beautifully. Snuggle those little ones a lot. I miss those most.

    Adorable. I love that book too but I’ve only made the little pixie hat. Nice work on the sweater and hat, I’m sure your sis will love it.
