More baby knitting … But these precious items are for a friend whom I have known since fifth grade and who is expecting her first child. The colors and chevrons were chosen as a surprise to match her bedding.

I always meet people who share my name. This is what happens when your parents name you a popular name. I share my name with several good friends, a friend from law school, and one very lucky lady who is due to have her second little girl.
These are the little things that I made for Baby Karmen and my friend.

My latest knitting projects all were baby gifts. A cute little baby blanket and two animal pacifier clips.
Elephant without his green pacifier clip
Both the elephant and the lion are made from the Teeny Tiny Mochi Mochi book written by Anna Hrachovec . Her tiny knits are so amazing.

The baby blanket is the Tweed Baby Blanketfrom Brooklyn Tweed (designed by Jared Flood). It’s one of my most favorite baby blankets to knit because it always looks amazing no matter the color choice.

After finishing my last project, I got a little ambitious and started two new projects.
First, I started the Holla Back Tank which I’m calling “Holla Holla” as it is in orange Shibui Sock yarn.

Second, I started working on another Brooklyn Tweed Baby Blanket with a cream center and pastel multi-colored border. No pictures as of yet … but more to come.
