Look What I Got…

Yes, it's the new book from Susan B. Anderson - Itty-Bitty Nursery! I helped design and layout for some of Susan's free patterns (which you can find on the sidebar of her blog) and to thank me she sent me an autographed copy. How cool is that?! If you haven't already you need to get a copy for yourself. As usual there are tons of cute, cute baby knits in here!Oh, what's that you say? Why yes it is and thanks for noticing my finished Aamu! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out but there is one thing that I don't like, the bottom ribbing is not fitted at all. I'm worried it will look and get stretched out. Maybe I should try washing and putting it in the drier for a bit to see if it will shrink? Well, I think I'll leave it as is for now - it's defiantly wearable, I do like it.Pattern Source: "Aamu" from Berroco's Norah Gaughan Volume 1
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden
Size: small

THANK YOU for all the positive comments on my Flower-Pin Tags and Blossom Barrettes!!! I'm working on stocking up with some so I can put them here and here. In the mean time, I will have the drawing on Sunday so I'll take comments through Saturday.

Thanks again, I really appreciate you all for stopping by!

Have a great weekend!

Your aamu is just awesome! And it looks great on you! I was so delisriously excited to get an autographed copy - aren't the patterns just sweet?! Like Susie herself!

Jill, I love your aamu!!! It looks fabuous! You can always run elastic thread on the inside through the ribbing, to make it tighter. I have done that before, and it works. I love the way you are wearing it.
Cute book.....I will have to check it out!

Oh I can hardly stand it... I pre-ordered Susan's new book from Amazon when I ordered her hat book, and Amazon still hasn't shipped it... I hope they sent it out next week! I can't wait to see all the cute stuff.
Love your Aamu.
