After recovering on Monday from the very long weekend, I started looking for a baby sweater pattern to knit. I wanted to try something new but also something that she would like and found Baby Sophisticate. Its a lovely fast knit with a cool short row cowl collar. While we were at the Mill End store we found buttons that matched the yarn. I was initially thinking a Baby Surprise Jacket and the three buttons commonly used, so was happy that we had four when I went with this sweater design.
SCA friend, Nephi is up visiting from Texas with her baby Jax. Poor little Jax upon arriving kind of curled up on himself and shivered. Mom had forgotten the temperature difference and really didn't have cold weather baby gear for him. So I dove into my stash and found some baby yarn and whipped up a hat for him and was able to give it to Shannon Thursday night.

|Swag we got from the book signing. Each one of us in our little row section had our raffle ticket drawn, so I got two signed book covers, plus Guy (her husband) was handing out Burning Bunny stickers and temporary tattoos.|
Star Booties, but quickly realized I did not have enough yarn. So back into pattern searching to find these - Gansey Booties. These are a delightfully fast knit! I think I whipped out the pair in four hours, so if you're ever stuck with a need for a quick baby gift, take a look at these.
