A few weeks ago I just had to have the Spud & Chloë Zipper Pouch. I'm not sure why exactly, but like I said, I had to have it.
The Zipper pouches are a little sneaky. They are not widely available online and it took a bit of searching.
While I was ordering I threw in the Brrr Bears Pattern (also from Spud & Chloë). I have wanted to make this for my husband for a while. He loves polar bears. We also get black bears around here sometimes (we had one last summer) so I thought it would be fun to make one in dark brown. I have a bunch of Spud & Chloë Sweater in Rootbeer that would be perfect. It was supposed to be for a sweater, but that just hasn't happened yet!
I also got Berroco Vintage in the Banane colourway:
It's such a warm, soft yellow and is definitely one of my favourite colours from their Vintage line. I plan on using it to make a Sunflower girl for Mary's 1st birthday from this pattern.
This was a pretty small order and only cost $4 to ship since everything was so flat. I was happy with the service from Jimmy Beans. They emailed me to ask which type of shipping I would prefer: $4 with no tracking or $21 with tracking. Um, $4 please! I'll take my chances and hope that it doesn't get lost!
Why am I "Knitting a Baby?" well, technically I'm not. I am preparing for a baby in the near(ish) future, and since knitting for a baby is way less stressful, I'll blog about both! I am currently expecting my first child, due in July, 2011. I'm very excited to share the experience with you!
I am 29 and a wife and already a "mama" to lots of pets (4 cats and 2 dogs).
