Keep Calm, Craft On: Baby Knits

Joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams today for Keep Calm, Craft On.

I have baby knits on my mind right now... My head is full of ideas and projects. This week I finished a pair of baby socks out of beautiful, dreamy, soft Sea Wool by Fleece Artist. What could be more appropriate than Sea Wool for an island baby?

I also finished a baby cardigan in wonderful Malabrigo Twist. The colour is Indiecita and it is one of my favourite yarn colours. Once again so soft and dreamy...

The patterns for both the socks and cardigan are from More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.

I am also working on a simple baby blanket with another favourite yarn, Rowan Purelife Bristish Sheep Breeds Chunky Undyed. This yarn is such a joy to work with. I love the feel and the colours of this natural wool.

Happy creating!


  1. Congrats!! I am so very happy for you and your family. Children are such a precious blessing. I love your knits. Your baby will be quite cute and cozy in them :)

    Je suis tombée amoureuse de la laine Fleece Artist et j'ai été voir leur site. Malheureusement on ne peut pas commander par internet, n'est-ce pas ? comment fais-tu ? as-tu un site internet ou il est possible de commander ?

    1. Bonjour Manuelle,

      La laine de Fleece Artist est exceptionnelle! Je l'achète chez Effiloché à Montréal. Il y a Celine en Laine qui peut peut-être t'en fournir. Tu trouveras le lien pour son blog (et sa boutique) dans la liste de liens au bas de cette page. Elle pourra sans doute t'aider si tu lui laisses un message. J'en ai déjà trouvé aussi à la boutique internet Waldorf Bookstore (Bob and Nancy's).
