Today is Baby L’s first birthday! Happy birthday smiley guy. This post is really LATE. These pictures are from December!

His birthday jogged my memory enough to tell you about this sweater I forgot that I had made. Here is Baby L with Big Brother O!

Every stitch of this sweater was a pleasure, as was every moment I spent with Baby L way back in September (it’s hard to live in a different state from your best friends and their children). I miss you, Paul and Shea!

For knitters, the yarn is Swish, from KnitPicks; the color is Dublin. On ravelry, the project is here. It can be found in a book called “60  Quick Baby Knits . I modified the sleeves to have XO cables up the center, for LOVE. I also modified the neck, after making some sort of weird mistake.

Boysenberry Beret

I made this for myself because I tried on the shop sample at Black Sheep Wool Company and it was adorable and I can’t resist Baby Cashmerino yarn, and the sample fit beautifully. Unfortunately, mine turned out too big. It was easy to make, with an easily memorized vine and leaf pattern. It made me want to venture out and try more lace and more cables!

Perhaps some larger-headed friend will get this for xmas, because it’s done now and I can’t bear the thought of stitching elastic into the band.
