Little Coffee Bean

I have been wanting to share some of the little numbers out of the ‘Knitted by Mommy’ collection that our baby boy has waiting for him.  I’ve shared pictures with friends so far but haven’t kept up on the blog… so thought it would be fun to post a picture a day of what I have made thus far.

At the beginning of my pregnancy I had thought I’d have a heaping pile of these cute little baby knits made by now.  But sadly, that is not the case.  I hope to still whip out a few more and catch up a little with my heaping pile of patterns.

Earlier this summer I made this Little Coffee Bean Cardigan.  I just love how little and boyish it is.  Made out of Berroco Vintage, which is a machine-washable worsted weight that I got at my LYS, the cardigan is so practical to keep him warm this winter.  The top-down, raglan style pattern is super easy and fun.

If you click on the picture you can see the cute little polkadot buttons that I think are great with the stripes.

I just love how small and precious it looks in my husband’s hands.

And the cute little baby hat to go with it…

The pattern is Bobbles for the Whole Family, and it’s a great one for a quick, cute hat in all sizes.  I’m going to have to make a few more in some other colors and yarns to keep him warm this winter.  =)

Sweater and hat on Ravelry here, and here.

Bun in the Oven

I guess I haven’t mentioned our exciting news here on the blog yet.  Many of you know but some of you lovely blog visitors don’t know yet, we’re expecting our first baby and are due to be new parents in October!  I think it’s about time I show and tell on the blog, since it’s pretty official now that I am 16 weeks along, and this would explain why the blog has been a little neglected lately.  I was completely fatigued and wiped out every day of my first trimester, that pregnancy fatigue is a doozy!  Now that we are in the second trimester I have been feeling more like my usual self, except for the bulging belly, and some random days of tiredness.

This picture is from our second ultrasound, at 11 weeks.  It was so fun to see the baby double in size and have new little arms and legs that sprouted since the first ultrasound at 9 weeks.  It is really an amazing thing to watch the baby move and bounce around on the monitor of the ultrasound, and to listen to the heartbeat!

Well, now that we’ve spilled the beans to everyone, I can say that the baby knitting has begun!  Here’s a little sneak peak on the cute little number I’m making now.  I’ll be posting more pictures of the oh-so-sweet baby knits soon!
