February Baby Sweater

February Baby Sweater

I had to keep this one under wraps for a while, as it was a gift for a friend, but now that she's received it I can post! Elizabeth Zimmermann's February Baby Sweater pattern, in green Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. Cute flower buttons bought at Shuttles, Spindles, and Skeins. Raveled here.

The baby for whom this was knit should hopefully be making her entrance into the world TODAY! Good wishes to the whole family for a smooth labor and a joyful arrival!

It's my birthday!

One of the many lovely presents I received this year was this shirt (in purple). It's a 100% merino wool shirt, meant to be worn next to the skin, and it's warm and cozy. But get this: on the tag there is a code, and you can go to their website and enter that code to find the biographies of the sheep ranches from whence your wooly merino shirt came. Much as I love knitting my own things, I can't knit everything, and it's nice to find a clothing company that respects its sheep!
