Over the weekend I was invited to a baby shower for my cousin. She is expecting her first baby in May. She is more like a 3rd cousin (well married to my third cousin), but she is having a girl and if you know my family we don't know how to make girls. So I couldn't resist knitting a little pink jacket!
I made the six month size and I used Anzula Squishy in the colorway Mauve. It is 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere & 10% nylon. It is so soft and squishy. I modified the original pattern and didn't make a hood. I didn't think a newborn needed a hood. The pattern goes up to a size 2 I believe. if I was making it for a two year old I would have made the hood.
I was lucky to find just the right buttons as Chelsea Yarn. They are having an Anniversary Sale I highly recommend checking it out!

For reading (or listening since it was an audio book) I just finished "Gaining Ground: A Story of Farmers' Markets, Local Food, and Saving the Family Farm" by Forrest Prichard. I absolutely loved it!
