SO SO CUTE, and I LOVE that yarn! I've never seen it before...where did you get it? Is it cotton?

Hiya.  I bought the yarn at Michael's (or Jo-Ann Fabric?) before I moved to Northern Ireland.  According to the Bernat website, it's 70% cotton and 30% nylon.  I found it in among the crochet yarns, and I think that's why a lot of knitters don't know it exists.  It's quite affordable and has a fun shine to it.

You can find out where it is near you here:  http://www.bernat.com/store.php?LGC=coolcrochet
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Zoe's Neopolitan Coming-Home Outfit on: July 18, 2007 11:28:59 AM
I knit this for my niece Zoe Echo, and her parents chose it as her coming-home-from-the-hospital outfit.  My sister is anti-pink (as am I), so I was relieved when she said she liked it.  It was supposed to be a wee shirt, but apparently they like to wear it as a dress with her legs hanging out.  

The top is the Eyelet Vest from Debbie Bliss' Special Knits: 22 Gorgeous Handknits for Babies.  The hat is the Petal Baby Hat by Bonnie Brann (http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babypetalhat.htm).  I used Bernat's Cool Crochet yarn in Neopolitan Shades.  I used a deep chocolate ribbon and an antiqued button closure.

6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Zoe's Mr. Stegs on: July 18, 2007 11:13:00 AM
Because every infant with a knitting aunt needs a stuffed dinosaur, here is Zoe's Mr. Stegs.

He is based on the dinosaur pattern from x-treme knitting (http://www.xtreme-knitting.com/photos-dinosaurs.htm).  I knit him in Paton's Moonglow, Moonlight, which is a kick-ass yarn.

Like most dinosaurs in their natural habitats, he was difficult to photograph.   Grin

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Zoe's Accessories on: July 18, 2007 11:04:38 AM
Even though it's 100 F in Tucson where my niece lives, she still needs cute accessories.  Plus, I live in Northern Ireland in the cold, so it's hard not to make hats all year round.  :-)

Kittyville's Lil Devil Hat knit in Sugar n Cream, Country Red.  Being modelled by a beverage, of course.

And a cute little hat and mary jane slipper set.  The hat is Stitch Marker's a little hat (http://larissmix.typepad.com/stitch_marker/2005/09/a_little_hat.html)
 and the mary janes are from a free Lion Brand pattern called T-Strap booties.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Zoe's Sweaters on: July 18, 2007 10:42:07 AM
Though I may be living 5000 miles from my sister and brother-in-law, there was no excuse not to spoil my niece with handknits.  So wee baby Zoe Echo in Tucson received these all the way from Belfast!

A little green sweeter from an old Spectrum pattern (#7148) with little flower buttons.  Knit in Tahki's Cotton Classic.

A little cream hoodie with sparkly buttons based on the baby baby pattern from Jil Eaton's Minnies.   Knit in Knit Pick's Crayon, Buttermilk colour, which is not as dark as it appears. 

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My Romana Hat on: July 07, 2007 11:00:13 AM
I knit Sandra's Romana pattern  for my sister's birthday.  Pattern here: http://strikam.blogdrive.com/archive/cm-01_cy-2006_m-01_d-26_y-2006_o-0.html

The yarn, freedom spirit by Twilleys of Samford, inspired me.  The colours remind me so much of fall and the outdoors.  Living in Northern Ireland, it's been chilly.  It just occurred to me that it might not be the most appropriate gift for my sister and her 110 F weather in Arizona!   Cheesy  She loves hiking so it'll eventually be good in higher altitudes. 

Let me know what you think.

Do you have any pics of the baby in the kimono?  I know the baby kimonos are cute, but I'm skeptical about them.  Any complaints from the mom (you?) about the kimono?  I think yours has buttons not a tie.  My thought is that the baby would be constantly untying the darn thing and it would get annoying.
