It's all about the baby

Yes, the babies are coming right & left which means everything is on hold so that baby knits can be completed. My cousin had her first baby on August 8th. A beautiful baby girl named Isabella Rose. Ain't she a beauty?! And, this means I finally have a baby girl to knit for. All of my friends, up to this point, have had boys. Don't get me wrong. I love those bruisers, but there's nothing like making/buying pretty clothes for a girl.

So, here's what I've got going for her. Trellis in Cascade 220 Superwash. This picture sucks. The color is a dark lavender color. I'm almost done with the back, so it's going pretty quick. *I'm also going to make a green version of this for my nephew.*

This is the Ribons Baby Blanket pattern from Fiber Trends. It's great, it's done completely in the round & gives an option for a plain center or a flower in the center. I did this one with the flower in the center since it's for a little girl. The yarn is stash...Red Heart Kids in Dream Girl. I love it!

See, here's the little flower in the middle.

That's it so far, but trust me, there's more to come. For now, I leave you with a picture of the most recent sock yarn from the STR sock club. It's called Flower Power, and although I won't be making the anklet pattern that came with it, I do have a pattern picked out for it.
