Babies, Babies Everywhere

We have two really special new baby books at the shop right now.

Vintage Baby Knits contains heirloom projects from the 1920s to the 1950s. More than 40 vintage patterns have been reworked and rewritten in modern knitting terms using currently available yarns. There is really something for everyone in this book. Here are a few of my favorites.

Check out the compete gallery over at STC Crafts.

Vintage Knits for Modern Babies is full of really sweet projects, too. Caps, booties, blankets, toys, are some of the good ones.

We always have a nice selection of baby soft machine washable yarns, and we are happy to help you find the right yarn for your project.

I love the classic designs in both of these books, the styling is beautiful, and you'll really be able to create an heirloom piece from either one. If you are expecting or if it seems like everyone you know is having babies right now, come take a look.
