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.
