Knits for the Tiniest Baby Boys

In the last entry I showed you some things for boys and men. Since then, I got a commission to make matching, but slightly different hats for 11 year old triplet boys. What fun! They are very excited and are working with their mother and me to design their own hats.

Here are some brand new baby boy knits. Now your littlest guy can wear a grown up sweater vest. I used heart shaped buttons because baby boys can be sweethearts, too!

These baby clothes can be seen and purchased individually or as a set at

I've made a similar set in pink that I will be posting at Etsy in the next few days. I don't ordinarily do pink and blue pastels, but this yarn, and these colors, were so irresistable. Also, I've somehow become fascinated by multiple birth babies and I though the set in pink and blue would be great for brother-sister twins.What do you think?

I only want to add that I adore my three children, but I'm SO GLAD that they were born individually, not all together!

Knits for Men & Boys

Re-reading my last few entries I see that I announced that one of my crocheted neckpieces would be in Lark Books upcoming Crocheted Fiber Jewelry. Actually... it's TWO of my necklaces will be in the book! So Exciting!!

I've been thinking about how hard it is to get handknits for men and boys. You rarely see them on Etsy or anywhere else. I can't imagine why since in my experience (1 husband, 2 sons) men like handknits just as much as women and girls (1 daughter).

Here are some of my handknits for Men and Boys. You'll notice that some of these "knits" are really crocheted. I've been doing more and more crochet lately. Let me know what you think about my menswear. Also, they can all be purchased at Etsy - either at or at If you write to me directly through the comments, I would be happy to knit or crochet something special for the Man or Boy in Your Life.

Who Likes Bumble Bees?

You can see from my last entry that I really like flowers. And what about that cute bee perching on the sunflower.

Yes, I am a gardener as well as a knitter and crocheter.

So here's my latest creation. Bumble Bee Fingerless Gloves:

Sunflower Harvest Collar

Here's something new I crocheted. I just love Autumn and Sunflowers, so this came to mind. The bumble bee on the center of the flower is a button that fastens the collar. Quite unusual, don't you think?

It's actually for sale in my Etsy shop.
