Baby Bushwick Beanie

My fabulous sister in law Heather asked me the other day if I thought it would be easy to modify my Bushwick Beanie pattern into a baby/toddler sized hat. Heather is a fly-by-her-needles sort of knitter and has no qualms with ripping back if something comes out all wrong, so I figured she wouldn’t hate me too much if I led her completely astray. I suggested that she might try using a worsted weight and smaller needles instead of taking the time to refigure the numbers and the cable pattern.

Two days later I received these heart stoppingly cute pictures of my lil nephew Healy, modeling a baby Bushwick Beanie. I think the sizing she obtained is pretty much right on. Healy is not quite 3 months yet, and there’s plenty of slouch for now (so it’s Brooklyn style), and it leaves him plenty of room to grow into it for some time to come.

Heather used I love Cotton yarn and US 7/4.5mm needles to make her baby beanie.

A Crafty Saturday

The Autumnal Equinox arrived this weekend, and here in Texas we finally felt the first break from our 90+ degree heat. Saturday was such a lovely day with temps in the 60s in the morning and peaking in the mid 80s in the afternoon. I met up with some lady friends for a nice brunch and all around crafty day.

We stopped by The DIME Store, a brick and mortar store born out of the Etsy Denton collective. DIME (Denton Independent Maker Exchange) opened up shop this spring and I have been really wanting to visit and take a peek at their handmade wares.

These burlap pillows by Home Again were really cute, and even though the “I heart US” is surely referring to the United States, I really loved the idea of a pillow that says “I love Us” referring to the identity of a couple.

There were some really adorable bags and clutches made by Rachel Elise that I was too busy drooling over to get a picture of and these cute little knitted baby hats by Cassie Arnold Art.

Afterwards, we went back to my friend Felicia’s house for a little bit of knitting ourselves. Felicia cast on for a Hill Country Hat, and Bri started up a slightly modded version of my Infinity Cowl pattern, having given the one she previously knit away to a good friend.

We had such a good time talking knitting all day and I look forward to seeing their finished knits.

The article I wrote for Pom Pom Issue 4: Verdant Stitches chronicles a trip to Texas Hill Country, where Joey and I stayed in a big ranch house with some of our good friends while the guys were recording an album.  The issue is available HERE and also contains a bonus pattern for my Hill Country Hat, which I knitted during the trip.
