Wool, baby.

I’ve been anxiously awaiting this day, so that I can share one of the many things that has kept me busy this year. Meet Wool Baby, my 4 piece baby collection, for Quince and Co. I love it so much, and had so much fun choosing from all of Quince’s beautiful colors. One blanket, 2 cardigans, and a sweet little bonnet are included in this ebook for $12. Sized birth-24 months. You can purchase them here. See the patterns Mae, Arlo, Elmer, and Aziza on Ravelry here. I hope that you like them!

I have 2 sick kiddos and a bunch of deadlines looming, but I’ll be back later this week with more to share, including a simple recipe that my family is crazy about.
