it's taken me a little while to post this, but here's a cute clothing kit i sent along when our niece esmé was born (in late october!). the cardigan and knit hat i'm quite proud of. for these i used patterns from a vintage knitting book (1968) and this alpaca yarn. i love the little raglan cables and turned up cuffs. i was a little nervous to knit the hat because the bumpy texture required dropping/unravelling stitches, but it was actually pretty easy once i got the hang of it. i definitely gained some knitting confidence making these!
i used this pattern for the long sleeve tee. the poofy pants are a combo of this simplicity pattern (too complicated) and the bloomer pattern in made by hand (not complicated enough). i love the way these pretty fabrics look together.
this vintage knitting book has some pretty crazy stuffed animals propping up the sweaters. who decided this bunny needed makeup?
