Appalachian Baby

posted in: baby, baby knitting pattern | 5

Back in August I blogged about some washcloths I knit using a kit from Appalachian Baby. We’ve been using the washcloths at almost every bath time since Dash was born. I even noticed Brian always reaching for these hand knit washcloths first, and when I asked him about it he said he thinks they are the softest. If you missed it, you can read the post here.

I was thrilled when she sent me THREE kits! She sent me a blanket kit, the Lamb’s Ear Cardigan (which I asked for, because it is SO cute), and a one skein bonnet kit.

Our little butter bean has been lavished in hand made blankets. He has a crocheted blanket, two handmade quilts, a handwoven blanket, and a couple handmade fleece blankets. Although I love the beautiful blanket patterns, I’m just not sure I could find use for another blanket. However, he is in need of a little comfort blankie, that we can put in his crib with him to help him self soothe. So I’m thinking about making a couple (or maybe three) identical mini-blankets that we can give him. And having more than one will hopefully help us avoid complete and utter melt down if one get misplaced.

Of course, the project I’m itching to cast on the most is the Lamb’s Ear Cardigan. His nursery (which is currently sharing a room with my office) is sheep themed. My logic was that the sheep theme fits both my office and is a cute gender neutral theme for baby. So a sheep sweater for him to wear in his sheep room sounds too cute to resist. So far I’ve only started with a gauge swatch (did you know that having a baby means less time for knitting?!). But I’m hoping to get started on the knitting of the sweater VERY soon!

    I, too, want that dish cloth pattern. And can we purchase that cotton as well separate from the kits?
    Thanks in advance

    I would like to see the pattern of the washcloths and know the name of the cotton that you used to make them. I truly enjoy your blog. Thank you, Pat
