Baby designs on the brain

Posted on | December 7, 2011 | 4 Comments

Not surprisingly I suppose, I have baby designs on the brain lately.  My mind is constantly churning with what might look cute on my daughter, Olivia — who is already somehow 9 months (how did that happen?).  My philosophy with baby knits is scaling down and incorporating elements of design that I already gravitate towards in adult knits.  I’m not a huge believer in overly cute baby clothing…though I do admit being charmed by babies in garments with cuddly animal touches.  Who doesn’t love little bear ears on a baby onesie like the ones Debbie Bliss makes?

I have two upcoming baby designs I’ll release soon. One is the Wee Austin Hoodie (which I’ve posted about previously), a kid-friendly version of the adult Austin. It’s been tech edited and is just waiting for more photos and the layout.  The other is a double breasted coat in a gorgeous pale pink.  The yarn is Quince Lark, a wonderfully basic — in the best sense — wool yarn which incidentally, comes in a wide variety of pleasing shades.

    I totally understand that dilemma. I dream up cute baby knits, whip it up, and fail every time to write a pattern. I guess I get too hurried- need more focus!

    Both sweaters are stunning- can’t wait to see more.

    Olivia looks toasty and warm. Love the double breasted jacket. Will that be unisex?
