I only knit occasionally, usually when I have a good reason, like a new baby in the family. My nephew and his wife are expecting, so I headed to my local yarn shop to find some fingering weight baby yarn. All the local chain stores carry sport or double knitting weight, and since I inherited by Mother's collection of knitting books, I prefer to use the vintage patterns.
The first set is from a Beehive book from the late 70's, called Leaf and Lace Set for 3 months size. I love the texture that the pattern provides for the body of the sweater.
The second set is called Baby's Eyelet Coat and Bonnet in a 6 month size. The pattern is from one of my Mother's books, called "Beehive for Bairns Volume 3". I remembered this pattern, as my Mother knit a set for my first baby, who is now in his early 40's!
Now to change the channel, and get back to quilting!
