Baby Knitting Goodness

And, I'm back! Lots of things to report since my last post. New patterns. New nieces. New yarn. New FOs. I guess I'll start with the most important FO - my new niece, Lauren!

My sister gave birth to little Lauren on 12/4.

 Caitlyn is totally in love with her new little sister.
Admittedly, I did not have a lot of stuff already knit for this baby like I did with Caitlyn, but I did manage to knit a baby bunting, which will be perfect if winter ever shows up in Chicagoland.

I picked up the kit for the baby bunting at Vogue Knitting Live! in October. It was an impulse purchase. I knew that a baby was soon coming from my sister's womb that would need to be, uh, bunted. The pattern is Buga Baby Bunting from Spud and Chloe. The yarn was Spud & Chloƫ Outer, a nice chunky yarn, making this a very quick knit.

I also whipped up a hat last week, once we knew that Lauren was a girl. It's my new go-to baby hat, the Upside Down Daisy Hat by Susan B. Anderson (the bunting pattern is also by Susan, I guess I really like her patterns!)


It's currently a little big for Lauren's head, but I think in a few weeks it will fit just fine. I'm so excited to have another niece to knit for! You'll probably be seeing lots of baby knits here on the blog over the next few weeks. Happy knitting!
