The last couple of months have been rather busy.  If you are friends with me on you may have noticed the multitude of baby patterns that I have been adding to my favorites and queue.  I have good reason for this as I am currently 13 weeks pregnant!!  We are super excited to welcome ‘Baby K’ into the world on or around March 8, 2011!   In between all of the morning sickness, working, taking care of our son and teaching a knitting class, I somehow managed to whip up a new pattern! 

The Knitted Baby Onsie is a great first garment piece for a beginner, a super quick baby shower gift or a stash buster project (only takes one skein!).  On September 18th I will be teaching a class at The Knitting Nest to show you exactly how to make this!   In the class, I will also be teaching a tutorial on how to attach the snap button closures and the cute little fabric patch embellishment.  No sewing machine required! 

The ridiculously adorable fabric can be found at this Etsy shop called ‘A Little Sweetness‘.  This artist designs her own fabric and then prints it via  WAY cool!  The shop owner also has a bunch of embroidery patterns and she loves the aqua/red combo.  If we have a baby girl, I will definitely be picking up this kit:  Little Red Riding Hood Dress.

So yeah, Baby K  is on his or her way!  So far everything is looking great.  We’ve had an ultrasound and also got to hear the baby’s heartbeat.  We are going to wait until the baby’s birth to find out the gender (such an awesome surprise!!).  Also saving the name announcement until then as well.

*I am still working on different sizing for the pattern.  Please email me with any questions you may have.  Also, if you find a mistake, please let me know that as well!  I am very new to the pattern writing scene!

OK, so before I say what I am about to say, I want you all to know that I promise not to neglect my current projects.  I swear on 20 skeins of Malabrigo that I WILL complete my current projects.  Err, I started making Ishbel.  There, I said it.  It’s out in the open and I don’t have to hide anymore.


My knitting Coach (aka my husband) is going to be furious with me.  I trust that you all can keep this little tid bit of information between us ?  I started this mostly because I wanted to see how ‘Perfectly Plum‘ looked when wound up.  Ishbel will be for my Mom.  So Mom, if I get in trouble, it will be all your fault.

I REALLY want to make this for myself. Had my eye on it for quite sometime now.

It’s perfect for fall/winter here in Austin.

Have the yarn, just need to dye it.  I am thinking I will go with a similar color.  Although I am open for suggestions.  What do you think?
