Baby Knitting is in the House!

We have babies on our brain lately, and LOVE that we can now announce that our sister Elese and her hubby Shaun are expecting in April AND our brother and his wife are also due a few days later.

Which means in the spring we will be proud Aunties! We are thrilled and so very very excited! Elese was over this weekend and let us have fun with her and her new baby bump.

Our knitting lately has taken a shift now into the baby knitting world, and we love the cute creations that have been made. Our Mama pulled out her favourite knitting books and has been very busy.

What have we been making?
 First she made two Simple Hats from:

They are both made out of bamboo and cotton wool. Then she created the cutest rust coloured cardigan and matching hat. The cotton cardigan is The Garter Stitch Cardigan from:

After reading through a few hat patterns, she decided to make her own, out of the leftover wool. The adorable purple booties are also from Simple Knits and are her number one pattern for baby booties. They are easy to make and you can make them in an evening. The best is that they stay on baby's tiny feet. 

I (Renee) made a teeny In threes: a baby cardigan  out of a cotton and linen blend. It was such a great and simple pattern I plan on making many more. The pattern is very clear and great to follow. 

This past weekend we struck gold at the wool shop: Wool Tyme:. We found a huge variety of baby wool on SALE! They also had our favourite wool Mission Falls which sadly has been discontinued. We were able to stock up for the next batch of baby knitting. All that baby wool has made our little knitting hearts smile. : )
