I'm a boy, I'm a boy, but my mom won't admit it


Haa haa, for some reason I've had that Who song stuck in my head for days. In actuality my husband and I were pretty sure that we were having a boy, due to my extreme hunger. (Extreme as in I do not sleep through the night but have to get up several times to eat) When he gets to be teenager he's going to eat us out of house and home.
Feeeed Meeee!

One thing that is hard admitting is that boy baby sweaters don't seem to be nearly as fun as girl baby sweaters. I'm having a hard time finding patterns I'd actually feel like knitting. If any of you have some suggestions for boy or unisex sweaters please let me know.

In the meantime there are a few baby things that have come off the needles.
One finished Brownie hat in Cascade 220 Heathers...
I'm still surprised that ear flaps are "in."

And one Otto in Sublime cashmere/merino/silk...
grrrrr, argh

Both patterns were good stash busters for some odd balls that had been hanging around.

I'd hoped to have FO photos of the Vogue Heart Yoke by now but the ideal button has been elusive. Some custom made buttons have been ordered so maybe by the beginning of next month there will be a nice final post for that.


  1. Cute hat, and what great news!

    How about Snug, Baby Sophisticate, and Trellis? Those are all cute baby sweater patterns that work for either boys or girls! Also, the Pebble sweater vest, or even my Owl Baby Vest pattern.

    There's a more boyish version of the 5-hour baby sweater on Ravelry, as well as the ever popular Baby Surprise Jacket. Hmmm... also the Placket Neck baby sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, the Organic Guernsey by F. Pea (free on her blog), and the cute Dream in Color Rocketry stripey baby cardi kit/pattern.

    Can you tell I love knitting baby sweaters?!? Have fun!

  2. Have you seen the book 'Vintage Baby Knits' by Kristen Rengren? It's got loads of adorable sweaters that work equally well for boys and girls! I've made two so far and I love them... You can find the book on Amazon (with photos) here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1584797614/?tag=googhydr-21&hvadid=4127210113&ref=pd_sl_4g1s6sjlpt_e and they're all on Ravelry as well!
