Some progress, some things exactly as they were

Progress – A “Pea Pod Baby Set” for Maria’s baby, with blue ladybugs marching up the button placket. First, as modeled by Mona (Lisa):

Second, a more “serious” wide shot:

Third, channeling my inner brooklyntweed on the buttons and lace placket:

(Yarn: Dale Baby Ull, 2.5 skeins, color: 9436. Size 3 addi turbo needles. Blue ladybug buttons bought at Woolwinders. Pattern: Kate Gilbert’s “Pea Pod Baby Set.” Size: largest, but Baby Ull is lighter than the yarn called for in the pattern, so size is sort of small, toddlerish).

And for the thing that is exactly the same (in a manner of speaking), Milo, though bigger, is still very, very cute.

Yep.  still cute.

Yep.  still cute.

Yep.  still cute.


  1. Beautiful sweater, but that little Milo is ADORABLE! He’s TOO cute.

  2. Sad, that I am now expecting and you can’t even get this pattern anymore… I own the IK magazine and STILL can’t get it… I should have downloaded it when I had the chance…. I just don’t get how they post something for free and then decide you can’t get it anymore… booo
