Jumping Right Back In

Okay, I took a major blog hiatus while all kinds of things happened, and rather than try to cover all that ground, I'm just jumping back into the knitting.  Specifically, I've got a brand new baby niece to knit for, so lemme show you some of that.  

The pattern is Wool Leaves by Jared Flood, and I did enough repeats to make it square.

The yarn is Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton held double in natural.  It's the most beautiful cream color, very soft.

For the trim I used Debbie Bliss Pure Cotton in a very lovely blue, because everyone was convinced that baby would be a boy.  I think blue's nice for girls too, though.
