sew & tell - baby knits edition


If you are new or need a refresher for Sew & Tell guidelines you can click on the tab above for details on linking up!


So, it's not sewing, but it involves needles and yarn, which is sort of like thread - so I'm counting it!  I didn't make it either, but I got it in the mail this week. . . If you knew the weekend/week I've had - you'd know why I didn't get anything done.  Just to give you an idea - 5 hour drive to see family, a 2 year old with hand foot and mouth, sleeping in the same room with all 3 kids, 100+ heat at an amusement park, husband with the flu, fighting something off myself, and boxes to still go through. . .


My lovely sister-in-law Megan, who lives too far away from me, sent me this darling package this week - made my day!  The humidity and insufferable heat are one thing making me wish for cooler temps, and now I have these adorable hand knit duds to make me yearn for the crisp days of fall! 


My two older kids were to squirmy too model for me today.  Plus the not sleeping all night thing is turning me into a VERY impatient mother photographer.  But look who was so cooperative!


This little fair isle number is killing me with cuteness!  I can't imagine how many times she had to change yarn colors, not to mention just keeping her place in the pattern.

And what about a little cable poncho and hat combo?? OH boy, this is too much!!  Peanut had her 2 month checkup this week and she weighed in at a healthy 11 1/2 pounds, 23 inches.  Plus that blue Captain America bandaid is evidence of the torturous shots they gave her - why did I have to see that?  Broke my heart.


I'm so blessed to be surrounded by and related to so much talent!  I hope one day I'll be able to knit like this!

What beautiful gifts! Oh, I would love to just scoop up that precious baby and sit on the sofa snuggling all day! Enjoy! (I hope your family is on the mend and that you're able to tackle the remainder of those boxes soon.)

What a cutie patootie! THat hat is adorable, and although it was a labor of love, I think that you'll find that it was knit from a single skein of yard that was dyed to give it that pattern, so not quite as difficulty to knit as you think! ;-)

See, dyeing always makes things better! :-)

Laura said...

My daughter is expecting her first baby and the other Grandma is a knitter so she is in charge of the hand knits. Your baby is adorable!

Kristen said...

When it rains it pours. The knitting looks incredible. SHE looks adorable!

Cables are my all-time favorite stitches to knit. They look so big on a wee one, though. Too cute.
