I started my first baby item for my little Sophia due this November. I think it’s perfect that the name of this pattern is Sophie! It is the cutest little bunny pattern by Ysolda Teague.
It’s knitting up very quickly which is always nice. I’m really enjoying working with Debbie Bliss Cashmerino so far. And the color is gorgeous. I’m not a huge fan of pink, but this is a really lovely and subtle, dusty pink.
I’m using bamboo DPNs which I don’t normally like because they are too grippy, but they are actually helping me keep my tension now that I’ve switched to continental knitting.
The pattern has a nice picture of what the finish product will, hopefully, turn out to be.
On another note, my son’s new zebra backpack showed up in the mail today. It is the cutest little backpack from http://www.skiphop.com/ and reasonably priced too! His first day of preschool is quickly approaching, yikes!
