60 quick baby knits

I loved 60 Quick Knits, and I love 60 Quick Baby knits, too. I mean, 60 quick baby knits all out of cascade 220 superwash. How great is that!
There are so many darling patterns in this book, I can hardly stand it. I wish I would have photographed the little sheep pillow. Seriously adorable. There are dresses, sweaters, hats, mittens and blankets.
I always had a harder time finding baby boy patterns than girls. There are several cute ones in this book that I would have made my boys.

I have two to give away. If interested, please leave a comment here before Friday the 6th at 6 p.m. I'll have the random generator choose the numbers.
