We had recently had a slew of customers coming in looking for yarn to knit up baby things. One of the first pre-requisites of the selection is that it be machine washable. None of us like the idea of spending hours on a darling project for an equally darling kiddo, only to learn that it ended up in the washing machine by accident and is now a snug fit for doll.
This week’s Deal of the Day is 30% off Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. This Sport weight blend of 55% wool, 33% microfiber, 12% cashmere is very soft on baby’s skin and strong enough to resist the wear and tear of a toddler’s active lifestyle. Each 50 gram skein has 137 yards. Ravelers LOVE this yarn and well over 27,000 projects have been knit up with it already. We have several samples in the shop that you should come in to check out.
Debbie Bliss’s bombshell sweater #26 from this year’s Spring/Summer issue of her magazine, has been knit up beautifully without stripes. This snug fitting top reminds me of movies starring Doris Day or perhaps even Audrey Hepburn. It seems like the perfect top to wear with a full skirt while scooting around Rome behind Gregory Peck. Check out Roman Holiday, it might provide a fun mini vacation that doesn’t require packing or a passport!
We have two darling baby sweaters in the shop that were knit up with Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. Julie C. whipped up a mini Mariner Pullover designed by your favorite and mine, Hannah Fettig. This pattern was published in the Interweave Knits Weekend magazine from 2010 and is available in as an ebook that can be downloaded from Ravelry. The pattern covers sizes from 6 months to adult and can be knit up for everyone in your family!
Dawn knit up this cutie that is certainly worth recreating. I love the reverse stockinette and the fun stripes that look almost like ticking. Pattern details are on the tag in the shop, so we hope that you’ll stop in to check it out. We have a gorgeous selection of colors to choose from and at 30% these skeins are a perfect choice for your baby knits.
