This weekend, I was a very bad blogger. I did not take a single photograph of the pile of blankets I made my baby sister who's about to have her first baby (times two!), nor the sweet reversible newborn baby girl pants (thank you once again, Quick Change Trousers), nor the buckets (thanks to Maya's Nesting Burlap Bucket Pattern), nor a proper photo of the stack of bibs (the Liberty Bib template is perfect), or even the mountain of sweets that we baked for her baby shower (hello, my favorite macaroons!). Nope, rather uncharacteristically, there is a whole lot of blog fodder missing from the camera card this morning.
But sometimes, that's how these things go. Sometimes, despite all the forethought and planning and knitting....the sweaters are blocking the night before, and you're sewing the buttons onto the gifted knitted sweater on the way to the baby shower.
Yes, that's just how this went.
But I do have these! (Even if it's kinda cheating as the buttons are merely placed where they should be at this point.)
I wanted a little something sweet and lovely amidst the practical and utilitarian in my gift-giving, and so these two little sweaters made their way onto my needles. The pattern is in threes by Kelly Without A Net. I used Lorna's Laces Shephard Worsted - a superwash wool. And those sweet birdie buttons are from Bread and Buttons. A beautiful breeze of a pattern, the sweaters each came together smoothly, and relatively quickly.
And now, we wait patiently for those two sweet baby girls to join the family. I cannot wait to shower them in love and kisses and, of course, a whole lot more knitted stitches.
