I did it! I finished O's first sweater in time for his one year photoshoot. I couldn't be happier with the results of this knit. This is the 2nd time I made the Flax sweater. It's now my go-to baby knit for boys. I love everything about this sweater; quick, fun, seamless, large range of sizes and it's a FREE download. Thank you Tin Can Knits for designing this awesome pattern!I knit mine using Plucky scored from the Shindig out of the One Hit Wonder bin. I knit the 1-2 year old size and it was a perfect fit.

Sweet Lattice for Baby Z
I wasn't sure if I'd finish in time but Baby Z's blanket is done! Phew!

Thankfully it's completed and it looks just beautiful in Blue Sky Alpacas' Worsted Cotton in the Mediterranean colorway. I can't wait to meet my sweet lil boy and to wrap him up in his new blanket. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *...

Sample Knits & A Growing Belly
I had a few sample knits made up and I've been meaning to share them with you.
