to go with the sweater

They almost made me wish I could have another baby. I think it was the lazy daisies that got me. I actually can't WAIT to give these to my friend.
They are the perfect portable project. Out of the same book. Using the same yarn.

Looking for a sweater pattern for me. For the fall. Any suggestions?
(P.S. I like cardigans.)

Have you seen the new Norah Gaughan pattern booklet from Berocco? I want to make almost everything in there. Cardigans abound. I have the Aeneas on the needles right now, and I am loving it!

Check out Cassidy by Bonne Marie Burns from Chic Knits. It knits up really nicely.

They are so cute!

Alisha said...

beyond adorable!!

Julie said...

Oh, those are so precious! No suggestions. I mark them for later but never have time to get around to sweaters.

Mandy said...

Always enjoy reading your blog!

I've been a big fan of these two cardigans lately:

The Effortless Cardigan by Hannah Fettig
Quintet by Melissa Wehrle

They remind me a bit of the Sloughy Cardigan!

P.S. Those lazy daisies got me too! So adorable!

Those booties are beyond adorable. Oh, no idea what to suggest for cardis - there are tons out there that I wanna knit.

lovestitch said...

Oh adorable work! Love the booties, they're supper cute! And the cardi looks amazing, I've just learned knitting and yours give me such a great inspiration!
Great week! x

MadMad said...

They ARE cute! I see you in a Vitamin D. What do you think? I keep thinking by the time I finish, those flappy front bands that are so in style now will be passe... but I'm having a hard time resisting the siren's call...

Suzanne said...

I agree with MadMad's suggestion about you in a Vitamin D. I also really love, love, love Perry in the new Brooklyn Tweed Wool People collection. There are several other cardigans in there that I have my eye on as well.

As for the booties, they are cute to the point of edible.

O.K. I agree with H. Fettig's Effortless Cardigan--I made it and love it; also agree with Norah Gaughan's pattern booklet--her sweaters are so eautiful; Wool People has loads of cute stuff (I've already bought Gudrun's pattern); my favorite sweater of all time is Aidez by Cirilla Rose. I loved knitting it, loved the yarn, and get loads of compliments on it. Although I am not finished, I am working on Common Ground by Elizabeth Smith. I'm not completely finished, but I've enjoyed it and think it will get a lot of wear. How about it? Any pique your fancy?

Carol Feller's two new cardigans--Pecan Crush and Ardara--would look great on you. :)

adorable!

Bonnie D. said...

Oh wow. It doesn't get much cuter than that!! Love the booties!

Chantal Boucher said...

hoooooo so cute!!

Maryse said...

So cute! Love the little pink flowers... I'm also thinking about the next sweater/cardi for me. I recently discovered Heidi Kirrmaier. Thought you might want to check her out if you don't already know her.

rosieplichta said...

I made Aidez this summer, which was supposed to be finished by Memorial Day. I was sure I would be able to wear it, but it was WAY too small. The Ravelry posts said the sleeves ran small, and I used this uber-soft Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton so I frogged the whole thing and just finished it again this week.

Also I am wanting to copy the Siena Cardigan from Sundance.

ColorSlut said...

SO CUTE! I love how bright and cheerful they are. Perfect.

Peppermint Mocha Mama said...

I my goodness, those have to be the cutest booties that I have ever seen! Well done.

For you, may I suggest the Faux Circle Jacket from Cascade? It's quick, easy and very snuggly. You can find the pattern here ~ http://www.cascadeyarns.com/patterns_LanaBambu.asp

These both are so adorable! I am a huge fan of pink and green anyway, so these rock!

I love almost anything Heidi Kirrmaier. Snowbird is on my definite list and I really like the new Vitamin D (great throw on for early fall).

I am so happy you have posted more lately. I REALLY miss it when you don't. I especially miss the daily goings on with you and the kids! Hugs~Jan

Sarah said...

I also think there are some great sweaters in the new Brooklyn Tweed Wool People collection. I personally love the Sullivan cardigan. I am itching to cast on but need to finish other items first.

Heather said...

So sweet. I really like them.

sapphireblue said...

So adorable!!!

wayside wanderer said...

Soooooo cute!!!

Susan in the Boonies said...

I think those are DARLING!!!

Judi A. said...

Love the booties. Makes me want to knit something out of that book so badly. Must find the time somehow!

I love the larch cardigan by amy christoffers! SO beautiful and simple. CUTE booties!!

kathy b said...

awwww. green is glorious.

Hmmmm cardigan....
cosmopluto' knits : in the round cardigan ..is easy and I love it

Ness said...

Cute booties! I could live in my Girl Friday cardi (and it's a free Knitty pattern!). The Breezy Cardigan is next in my queue for the end of the summer.

knittinbrit_in_wi said...

My latest obsession is with Carol Sunday's designs and yarns from Sunday Knits. I just finished Adam's Rib Cap Sleeve Vest in Nirvana 5 ply and love it, as did everybody else at Schoolhouse' Knitting camp.

Take a look at Eve's Rib or Twist Vine Cardigan. I strongly suggest knitting with her yarns though - who can resist Cashmere/Merino blends. They're heaven.

house on hill road said...

good god. i could die from the cute!

knittinbrit_in_wi said...

oooh, had another idea. What about something from Knit Swirl. I think one of those cardi's would be right up your alley.

Just a thought!

Denise | Chez Danisse said...

So cute! I wish I was a tiny thing and could wear these.

Retired Knitter said...

Oh my, both are beautiful.

Erin said...

So cute. Have you seen the New England Knits book? I want to knit almost everything in it!

Someday said...

Darling!

I'm thinking about making myself an Aidez. If I can get up the courage. :)

Z of ZKNITZ said...

Oh those are soo cute!

It's like anything little, is the most cutest thing!

Priscilla said...

These are icing on the cake. Beautiful!

Kathy said...

Mountain View. I'm doing mine in lace weight but she writes it for fingering and sport weight. Some details but also some mindless stockinette.

caknitter said...

Adorable! Looking into buying the book, now. :-)

The Sullivan Cardigan by the new Wool People collection. I'll be casting on for this little gem myself...soon as this heat wave passes! :)

stitching under oaks said...

these are precious....startin her preppy at an early age! love it.

Kathleen said...

So cute, the sweater and the shoes!

Harvest Moon by Heidi Kirrmaier looks like a good one.

Jeanie said...

Adorable baby set! I am loving the Larch Cardigan (Ravelry). I can't wait to see what you decide to knit for yourself.

3 M's and 1 N said...

those are adorable! And yes, could easily bring about the wish to have another bambino!

Linda said...

Oh these make me smile! No little ones around that will still fit into them, but I think I'll make a pair for my niece's dollbaby.

As for a sweater recommendation, I agree with margaux: Amy Christoffer's Larch cardigan is quite fine.

I look forward to seeing whatever sweater you choose to knit. I'm sure it will be fabulous.

Nele said...

Cute and lovely!

Kristyn Knits said...

my two favorite colors!! too cute for words...can't wait to see her model them.

for a moment I thought, "yeah, I'd like to have a baby to knit for" then it passed.

Jolanda said...

Wow they are so so so cute :))) I like it's :)

Tricia U. said...

Awwwwwwwwwwwww...so darn precious! I absolutely love the booties AND the sweater. What a lucky baby! As for a cardi suggestion: I knit Jingu from Berroco and it's adorable with the beaded collar and felted ball drawstring. You can get a good look (close-up) at the beaded collar here on the video link:
http://www.berroco.com/slideshows/308/index.html
I think it's the perfect thing to throw on and it goes with everything! I also have yarn on backorder for Berroco's Santos cardi. I love cardigians, too!

Ashley said...

I've just found out about your blog through my auntie at http://poppycottage18.blogspot.com/
and what a lovely blog it is! I Love the booties, I may have to try them out for my little girl.

Hilary said...

Oh my goodness those are CUTE!! I know I just had a baby, but those make me want a little girl ASAP. (Don't tell my husband...this kind of talk totally freaks him out. :) )

kim said...

Okay, here's a word I don't use very often, but they are "darling!"

LeslieA said...

Too cute - looking at the cardi and bootees makes me wish I had a grandchild to knit for!

Victoria said...

Cute, cute, cut. x

Anita said...

Hi Leslie, The bootees are just adorable. It does get you all clucky when you see tiny little things like that. Kind regards, Anita.

the greenhorn knitter said...

Just perfectly adorable Leslie. What a wonderful gift.

Alittlebitsheepish said...

Really cute. My current favourite cardigan is Moshup by Norah Gaughan, very simple, but fast to make and looks great (even if I say so myself :) )

Proud Mama said...

I am loving all these ideas. Interested to see what you pick. I am thinking about the Abigail Cardi but like someone else I wonder if the style will be passe by the time I finish.

Beverly said...

OMG - My uterus started to ache...how cute are those. we have a bunch of new babies in our family...someone should knit these for them...
