Harper - Part Two

Ohhh its Harper – Part two of a a two-blog spread. As I mentioned in the last post, I got a sweet babysitting job in which I stripped Harper down to his onesie and dressed him up some luscious hand-knit creations! I love this pompon beret. This is a Debbie Bliss pattern from Simply Baby. This beret is up for grabs – or at least waiting for the next lucky baby in my line of pregnant friends. Unfortunately, I have a tendency to make things for babies and not get them in the mail soon enough! That’s the worst! I did manage to get Harper’s gift wrapped and given on his visit – look for the post soon with a tutorial.

Okay – here’s part two of the embarrassing Anne reveal. Putting aside my Debbie Bliss obsession, which was hard enough to admit, it might be worse that the Serafina Cowl that I finished two weeks ago is the first knit object I’ve made for myself since I was eight years old. Seriously – not a scarf, not a hat, not a mitten, and certainly not a sweater! BUT, I’m changing my ways . . . I loved the cowl so much that I’m making the Big Herringbone Cowl from Whit’s Knits on PurlBee, which I think is absolutely beautiful. If you’ve never tried the herringbone stitch, please do – its gorgeous. But not as gorgeous as this baby.

Harper – do get your parents to come move to Colorado – pretty please!

Bye-bye for now . . .

Thanks for reading!
