Beatrix Again

My second Beatrix is all finished and ready to be mailed off to baby Alejandra. I am so happy with how she turned out, just lovely. Of course, this one I knit and frogged, and knit again because my gauge was horrifically off. Quelle suprise...
Knit in gorgeous Koigu this is my second Beatrix. I must confess that this was a happy knit because I got to use a non-traditional pallet for a baby girl. Alejandra's mommy is a decidedly unpink girl, so there were no thoughts of pink or pastels for Alejandra. I love the little teacup button closure.

I knit this adorable stripy beret out of the left over yarn. It was part of the bundle that I donated to my church's Harvest Festival. Another mutual friend of her mommy was shamelessly talked into buying the beret as a gift for Carmen, the mom, so they could have a "mommy and me" moment. I am so ashamed that I convinced him to buy it...I cannot see Carmen ever wearing it. Oh well, it was for charity....hehehehe.

Oh, and I had my first sale on etsy! Yippppeeee!!! I wish I had a beret to toss in the air...

Congratulations on your first sale! Yay!!! I'm so proud of you.

The Beatrix is gorgeous, and perhaps the mom will be inspired to match with her little girl. That pink is not too girly ;)

yarn is to be smushed. how else can you tell if you want to knit with it? now smushing to the point that it looks a fright, not so good. yarn store workers dont like that. so i've heard.

i might make a beret out of it. maybe double it and stripe it with some white ultra alpaca i have left over. we'll see.

I told you last night when I saw you that I liked these two, but I thought I'd leave you a comment also. Beautiful job!!
