One Skein Wonders For Babies

The wonderful One Skein Wonders Series has a new book: One-Skein Wonders for Babies by Judith Durant. The book is chock-full of beautiful patterns for babies, each using just one skein of yarn (no surprise!). Included are patterns for booties, hats, blankets, clothing, and even toys.

My contribution is a cute little bib, Tutti Frutti, done out of Classic EliteYarns Seedling. This is perfect yarn for a bib; it is an environmentally conscious, machine washable organic cotton with wonderful texture and softness. Seedling is a great choice because it's absorbent and retains its color intensity well. I chose to use a hand paint for visual interest and added pockets to catch any runaway bits of food.

The bib is a quick and easy knit that would make a great gift for that special baby. Have fun choosing a silly button!

Also using Seedling is an adorable Octopus toy, Acht the Octopus by Rachel Henry. Check it out on page 232. Rachel says, “Little Lovey (or Kleine Acht, as I like to think of her), is made of Seedling Hand Paint. It’s a quick project with very little sewing - something of a novelty in the world of hand-knit toys.”

I was very excited to start knitting when my copy arrived; I hope you will be too. Please support your LYS and shop for the book there first.
