I love that sweet baby cap! I'd love to make one for my (big-headed) almost 3yo. I've been wondering for a while if it would be big enough if knit in worsted weight and the "2yo" size ... guess I'll just have to give it a try one of these days.

I've only seen that cap in kind of wild colorways - I really like how yours came-out with the neutral tone. It really brings the details of the stitches out.

That is so cute, both of them. I need some ideas for my SIL and those are definitely going on my list

LOVE the Kimono, thanks for the link to pattern - I am on a quest for what to knit the newbie and I am VERY picky, some sweaters just don't work for me at all.

OMG, I love that kimono. Thanks for posting the pattern. I was going to knit a different kimono for dd, but I think I'll use the pattern you listed instead.
