We are elated to welcome Rowan’s Baby Merino Silk DK into the fold here at fibre space™. (and just in time for my new baby!) This yarn will work up a wonderfully soft treasure for a very lucky little bundle. Bonus: it’s machine washable!
Two sweet new books accompany this arrival (and one more on the way!), and the projects within are hard to resist…
10 Simple Projects for Cosy Babies is the fourth book in the Sarah Hatton Knits series. Designs range from simple booties to frilly little cardigans, with tons of cuteness in between. I love the Pinafore Dress — nothing beats a piece that grows with the child. Knit big for layering in the colder months, then let your little one sport it solo in the summer. Growth spurt? Ta-da! It’s a tunic!
Just Baby is a collection of 18 baby (and toddler) designs by Lisa Richardson. These are the classics that never go out of style, and many projects are well-suited to the adventurous beginner/early-intermediate knitter. From a unisex long-sleeved cardigan to an elaborate patchwork-style blanket, this book is full of useful, timeless designs.
