Then, I get this very bright idea that baby Bella and Mona Lisa need little knitted coats for Easter....you do know that Easter is about a week a way don't you? But of course. You know what I'll be doing every waking moment in the next week!
For Baby Bella, it is a combo of a couple of patterns, but mostly from the Last Minute Baby Cardi. I just love Patternfish, don't you? See a pattern, no running out to the shop to find it, just pay for it and print. If you haven't checked them out you really should!
I'm using a pretty little pink textured yarn, Sirdar Snuggly Chatterbox DK. Who knows how long I have had it, but it is so squishy and just right for this little number. Plus it is quick. After all, how big does a little 6 pound baby sweater have to be.
For Miss Mona Lisa, who by the way is crawling a bit backwards these days, its the Victorian Coat, a Knitting Pure and Simple pattern, also from Patternfish. You know what I love about this pattern besides being neck down as well? It is sized from 18 months to 10 years, so in a couple of years, Miss Mona Lisa can have another one.
This one is from Cascade Pacific in some purple that I thought was going to go into a different sweater for her. This yarn, though had me a bit ticked. Three knots in about a dozen yards. Not good or what I wanted to see at all.
