All of Theo's hats became suddenly too small for him. And also too hot now that spring has arrived. I had been eyeing the Kyushu hat pattern by Kuroki Knitting for a while and decided to knit it now that I had the chance. I love knitting baby hats because they are really fast to knit but at the same time as versatile as grown-up hats. This hat had a really unique eyelet sic sac pattern which was fun to knit.
Theo was diagnosed with allergy to eggs, that's why his cheeks are looking so bad at the moment. But now we know and can eliminate all things containing eggs from his diet!
This was my first time knitting with Sandnes Garn Mini Alpaca, but certainly not the last one. Unlike many other alpaca yarns it was not at all itchy which is important for baby knits. The light blue color is also really cute in my opinion.
I have also finished the bunny yoke pullover I started knitting during the Easter holidays. The pattern is Sweet William by Ann Kingstone and it is one of the cutest baby patterns I've come across. I knitted the smallest size which was for 1-2 year olds. Now, my Theo is only 9 months so it is a bit too big for him, but I'm hoping it will be just perfect for him when the fall comes. For this project I used Holst garn Supersoft which in my opinion has one of the best selection of colors there is. The hardest part is always deciding which one to pick. I used Holly and Oatmeal for this project.
You can see some other familiar thing in this photo. Can you spot my Happy Day Mobile and knitted Babar?
I made the button covers using Kate Davies's tutorial. I love the look of the buttons and how they give the pullover a really finished look. The only change I made to the pattern was to shape the bottom edge with short rows to make the back a bit longer than the front, but other than that, I followed the pattern as it was written.
At the moment I'm knitting Theo yet another cardigan, which is the Nordic Fall cardigan by Trine P. It has a nice and easy garter stitch back with small twisted stitch details and bobbles that remind me of berry branches on each front. I'm really excited about this project and can't wait to show you more of it!
