Baby Clark with all his Knits


Congrats to E., a student of mine, whose son Clark was born recently. Over the second half of last year, E. attended my project classes, quietly knitting up a storm for the baby-on-the-way.

The bonnet is my Heirloom Bonnet With Ears.
The gorgeous hippo comes from the book Itty-Bitty Toys. This is a seriously great book - all the patterns are adorable, and knitting toys is a great skill-builder for adventurous knitters. There's working in the round, increasing, decreasing and various assembly techniques - all in small, quick-knit, supremely cute projects.

Love that book! I did two hippos, in two colors for my granddaughter and the yarn is in the cupboard waiting to become a giraffe ( I told her mother not to hold her breath. There are a few things ahead on the project list, including another mouse toy for the cat. Who is still using his cotton one witha vengeance!)

Oh congratulations! I'm so glad that I get to see the baby with the hippo (that I only saw in progress). The blanket is gorgeous. The baby the most beautiful of all.
