So my friend Sarah commissioned me to make more baby things because another of her cousins in pregnant. Which means I get to knit more cute things!

Pattern: Steggie Bib, the same bib I knit before.
Yarn: Recycled cotton from a thrift store baby blanket I dismantled.
Needles: US 6/4 mm
Mods: Several since the pattern has a bunch of errors (if you know what you’re doing, it will work out fine but if you follow the directions as written, the border will come out funky)

Pattern: Elijah by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Some sport weight acrylic I got my grandmother eons ago.
Needles: US 1.5
Mods: I made the trunk a little shorter than specified by mistake. Otherwise, knit exactly as written.

Guys. I totally love this thing. It’s completely adorable and I want him to snuggle and love. Unfortunately, he’s going to a baby related to my friend Sarah. Fortunately, I can make another! I probably won’t for a while (and probably not for me) but I bought the pattern (I’d been debating it for a while) and while it’s a little fiddly (especially the ears), but the result is SO CUTE. And the pattern is SO WELL WRITTEN. Guys, there’s a reason Ysolda Teague is the celebrity she is in the world of knitting patterns. It’s clear, lots of pictures, and every step is clearly spelled out.

So yes, I’ll definitely be making this one again. Here’s hoping Sarah’s cousin’s kid likes it as much as I do. : )
