Yes, I do knit.


Is this not the cutest thing you ever saw? Wait! Here is the back


A friend of mine is having a girl any moment now. I just have to add the bows to the sides, I had to share the picture.

Pattern: From Knitting for 2 - Erika Knight
Yarn: Cascade Yarns - Sierra (Pima Cotton/Wool) in light lavendar
Needles: US 5 Straight
Modifications: I picked up more stitches than was asked for along the bottom edge.

It looks perfect! It's such a brilliant pattern, don't you feel like such a great knitter after doing it, even thought it's pretty straightforward?

Aw, that's one of my favorites. I made one out of DB Cashmerino and it was just so fun to knit and see the flower "bloom" as I went along. Your friend will love your gift.

Ooh, very cute. And since it's for a baby, I imagine it's really soft...
