Like the new duds?

(Does anyone say that anymore? That may be before my time even, but I know I've heard it somewhere...)

So SweetKnits recently had a makeover. Kristin and I felt the need to "grow up" the site, and we had the pleasure of working with Marnie Designs for the project. Marnie did SK's first makeover, and we've been pleased with her designs in both instances! Since I like "matchy" things, I had Marnie update the ol' blog, too! What do you think?

So, while Marnie was busy on the site, I did a bit of knitting. All the knits featured in today's blog are now available for purchase online! (does that sound like a sports show announcer or what?).

First up, a pair of organic merino pants in a newborn/small size. These are available at Yinia. These pants are super soft, and I think simple, yet gorgeous. I wish I had a baby to put them on -- well, I don't wish it enough to have another baby, but you know what I mean.

Next, there is this lovely set -- it is currently up for auction at WAHMChicks as part of the semi-annual Fluff Factory Auctions (actually, there is just 12 hours left on this auction!). This is a 12months raglan sweater and coordinating medium picky pants knit from a lovely wool/alpaca blend. 100% of the money for this auction is going to the FFA charity for this summer: The Fistula Foundation. If you are so inclined, please check out the current auctions and bid high and often!

This adorable size medium skirty is knit from Three Irish Girls Elenya Alpaca in "Florry" and was a joy to see finished up! It is part of a set that is currently for sale at Threebies Knits. My friend Rachel (of TK) knit a gorgeous tank top to go with the skirty. It is just perfect for a styling little girl!

Finally, this pair of small/medium picky pants was knit from Blackberry Ridge Merino. I decided to have a little fun with a new-to-me embellishing technique on these! They sport a sweet little bouquet on one leg. These are available on SK's hyenacart.

I've just finished a marathon of other knitting as well -- some for collabs with some other fabulous WAHM's; some for customers. So, there is more coming! Right now, I'm taking a break from knitting pants. I'm rewarding myself after finishing up FOUR pairs this week -- yes, I said four. My treat? I get to knit my second Perambulate sock.
