Happiness is . . .

There’s a new baby girl in our clan, and you know what that means. Green light on all the tiny handknits! For starters, I worked up a little Abernathy Cardigan. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but it has an eyelet yoked collar that ramps up the sweetness big time. The yarn is Knit Circus Greatest of Ease Fingering in the “Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy” colorway.

Our new baby girl has an older brother who I’m sure is much more interested in things that come in the mail at this stage than she is, so I knit a little elephant for him. I turned to Susan B. Anderson’s Wee Ones Seamless Knit Toys for the pattern and used Cascade 220 Superwash because I had plenty of colors on hand to choose from and it’s washable.

Look at his precious tail!

And the tiny sweater! It absolutely undoes me. I want to knit a whole tiny elephant wardrobe!

While we’re on the topic of happy-making things, Knit Potion now has a logo. I really have no idea what I’ll do with it, but I love it so much! What do you think?

    I love your logo.

    I love the elephant too. I wish I had the patience for knitting stuffed animals; they are so cute. But so fiddly. I just can’t do it. Socks are the smallest things I knit and they aren’t fiddly for the most part. But I really admire you-who-make-animals.

  2. Ooh! I love your new logo!!! Congratulations on your new little arrival…girls are so much fun 🙂 I adore the little elephant you included for big brother. I did the same thing with my great nephew when his little brother was born and he loved it! And the sweater is super cute too!

      Thank you so much, Paula!! I’m hoping the gifts will be a hit. The package is supposed to arrive tomorrow! How is the sock knitting going? I have a belated Christmas pair I need to finish. Yikes!

Talk to me!
