Meet Baloo!

Okay, here's part of what I've been up to since the last post--getting a new pattern ready. Here's Baloo!Baloo is a Scots lullaby word, so I thought it would be perfect for this little suit. This design was one I worked on with Clara Parkes for the new book The Knitter's Book of Yarn, coming out on October 16!! It got cut from the book, probably because of space constraints (at least that's what Pollyanna me tells herself), but that's okay. I get to put it in the Figheadh line. I used Cascade 220 Superwash and a touch smaller needle--size 6--to make it close and cozy. Meredith at Write As Rain Editing is also to be credited for helping me get this pattern up to snuff--she's the best!

Stay tuned, because there are more new designs in the queue.

Also, thanks so much to Emy, Kate, twig, and Dawn for your warm comments on the Winter Gem gloves in the August-October Cast On. Just be sure to check their corrections page if you make the gloves--there were a couple more fixes.

Thanks for dropping by!

That is simply adorable!!! I love the color it is in, but couldn't you also see it in red for Christmas? It would look like traditional long johns for baby! So cute!

Hi, I love your patterns, and especially the gloves. I was really hoping to make them, but I cannot seem to find that magazine anywhere in my area (the only yarn store that gets Cast On is out of them). Any ideas where I can get the pattern? I'd just LOVE to make them for Christmas presents. Thanks!

What an adorable onesie! Almost makes me wish my grown kids would marry and have some babies, so I could knit one, or 2!
