Well.. after weeks of talking about baby knits on my podcast, I think it is HIGH TIME that I actually share them with you here on the blog! As you know, I've been preparing for the arrival of our baby boy due in less than a month! I've knit several baby things but have been too busy to blog about them. SO.. over the next few weeks, prepare to see a lot of tiny baby, knitted, cuteness. There is a lot to catch up on! First up.. Baby Sophisticate. Maybe the fastest, cutest newborn sweater EVER?…
Provisional Cast On: a Two-Step Method | Purl Soho
A provisional cast-on keeps cast-on stitches "live" so that they can be knit later. It's a very useful technique when you're not sure what kind of edging you'll want or how long to make something. With a provisional cast-on, you can make these decisions at the end of a project, allowing you to respond to the actual garment. I made this tutorial to go with my 70's Ski Hat Project Journal, the provisional cast-on is used to make a cashmere lining for the hat.
Silk Gray is an uncomplicated friend for a casual look. Absolutely non-itchy - this goes with anything and can be worn over a tank top, summer dress or a T-shirt.

The neck is wide and flattering with a small rib detail. I left the bottom rib open in the sides, but that’s optional of course.

Chocolate Fudge (Avocado) Cookies
(4 Years) This morning (a little before seven), the kidabunks asked if we could bake some cookies. Yes! Yes! Yes! I could use a few myself! I've been pretty lenient about baking healthy ever since the holidays (which for us began on November 1st- the kids had a brilliant idea that we should make practice pies, just to be certain that they will be tasty enough for Thanksgiving). Mixing 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat flours, instead of just all whole wheat (and some recipes all white flour…
