The details....

on the hats and soaker. I've been given the go-ahead to post about them. So here goes. First the color pictures.

Umbilical Cord hat pattern from Stitch 'N Bitch by Debbie Stoller. I used Blue Sky Alpacas dyed cotton in honeydew and lemonade. That yarn is so soft and squishy and silky I was doubtful it was really cotton. I can't wait to use it again.

**The hats were super easy and fast. The top is so cute. I was only supposed to make one but I had so much fun with this pattern that I cast on a second one immediately.

Radiant Twist soaker pattern by Meghann. It's soon to be released so keep your eye out for it at LilyPadLanding . For Erin's wool diaper cover I used Peruvian wool yarn from Amanda at Dyeing To Fly . Amanda does great things with color. The Forgiveness colorway is lovely baby pastels. Yellow, green and blues to surprise me along the way. I can't wait to see what she has in stock next.

**The soaker was also fun and super easy to make. Meg asked me test the pattern out for her but I think she really just wanted her darling son outfitted for the summer. The first two I knit went to her little man. Bottom is knit with Blackberry Ridge merino dyed by Kimberly of Beemer Knits in her Bananafish colorway and top is Lion Wool dyed by moi.
