Baby Boom

I'm in the middle of one. It seems that my friends are all working on the second child. This means lots of adorable baby knitting like this:


I love this yarn. It is Beemer Knits Buttercup organic merino in the Rowan colorway. Soft and squishy. I love the variety of colors in this. This is going to be a Mossy Jacket. I love that pattern. It's a simple cardigan but the asymmetry makes it kind of special. I bought trim yarn with the Rowan but I'm not sure how I feel about it.


What do you think? On one hand, I like the neutral. The yarn is wild enough and having something simple going all the way around the neck, wrists, waist and button band might be nice. On the other hand, I wonder if the brown...matches at all. I mean, I know there is brown in the yarn but...I don't know. Thoughts?

In other news, I got another fiber club installment from Dashing Dachs. I LOVE me some Dashing Dachs but have not really been feeling the colorways from this club. I'm wondering if I should put a couple of them up for trade in case someone will enjoy them more than I do. This is a variation of her Baobab colorway:

When you look at the skeins side by side I would say no, but looking at the swatch, there is plenty of brown in there. I think it probably will look good together.

I love your choice of colors! They are so happy and... well, colorful. They make me smile.
