Weekend (and Blueberries)!

Finally, a weekend! It has been great, because even though there was studying and writing a paper, there was also knitting, baking, shopping, and way too much tea…

I started (and finished!) a little blueberry knit set for some good friends who are due to have a baby any day now. I’m really happy with how this turned out and I can’t wait to meet the new baby!

The booties are this pattern. The booties and the hat are both made with Bernat Softee Baby, which is soft… and washable! (On Ravelry here).

The hat is this pattern. It was so quick to make, I’ll definitely be using this pattern again. (On Ravelry here)

Aside from knitting, on Saturday night, I decided to do some baking. I made Orange Pull Apart Bread from The Whisk Kid. If you haven’t been to this website, it’s amazing. Her recipes are delicious and her photography is just gorgeous! The bread takes some time to make, but is it ever worth it…

It was messy and sticky, but oh-so-good.

Have a great week!

Have you seen my new pattern yet? It’s called Crayon Striped Mittens and is available as a free Ravelry download (Download now).

  1. I LOVE that hat – it is so cute! Your friends will love it! And can you really ever have too much tea?! I think I drink 8 cups at least a day – OK, probably too much!

    • Thanks! Haha, that sounds like me… There is no such thing as too much tea, right?

  2. Lovely baby set. Thanks for the link for the pull apart bread. I made some sugar and cinnamon pull apart bread on the weekend, but I found it was way too sweet and it didn’t come out very well. I am off to check the orange recipe. Thanks for sharing

    • Thanks! I loved the bread, and i can’t wait to try some other versions as well. Sugar and cinnamon sounds amazing, let me know how it turns out!

  3. LOVE the blueberry set! That blue is wonderful! The bread looks delicious too…I was looking for something to bake with the kids after nap!

    • Thanks! That’s one of the reasons that I like using this yarn for baby things- it’s so bright and colourful! (and the new parents like it because they can throw it in the washer!)

  4. That is a really precious set! I put those booties in my queue (and friended you on Ravelry while I was at it – your projects are lovely!).
