design sunday

Ahhhh, here we are again, Sunday afternoon. Designer day. This week I picked one of my absolute favorite Etsy sellers. Designer Hadley Fierlinger began creating baby knits in 2002 after a move to New Zealand inspired her to work with native merino wools. Over the years has attracted a small but faithful following of customers who love the simplicity of vintage style and natural fibers. In 2006, expanded into selling knitting patterns. These patterns are available as a PDF download or as a printed booklet.

I purchased the pattern for the floral wrap sweater and the pixie hat. I bought 5 balls of the most luscious cashmerino yarn in pale pale pink and handed the whole project over to my mother-in-law who happens to be a talented knitter. I am sure Mei Mei will be absolutely irresistibly cute in the ensemble.

Why is it that I am so completely ga ga for handmade baby items?

I have also decided that I must, must, must have this precious car coat.

Just wanted to mention that I am working on a baby knitting pattern book which will include the Car Coat. The book is due out in 09.
