Coffee Bean Cardigan, Booties and a Pumpkin

So, I made Sam a lot of sweaters and things before he was born, and I am so excited that now he’s starting to actually fit into some of the things that I’ve made! The Coffee Bean Cardigan fits him now (well, the sleeves are a little long, but oh well!) and so do the matching booties! (I blogged about both here before Sam was born)

He was being kind of a squirrely little model for me, so I didn’t get any great pictures…

And I think he was trying to distract me, like in this next picture, I like to imagine he was saying something like “Oh, look mama, over there!”

But I am just glad to have some warm clothes that fit him now, because MAN it is getting cold out there. There was talk of snow here a few nights back, but fortunately it didn’t snow. I know I should just embrace it, but it’s really hard because we have such a short fall season here. I feel like once I had the baby all the sudden it was winter! Which is ridiculous! It was 95 degrees out the day Sam was born, and he’s only 2 months old and now we’re talkin’ snow?! What! At least now he’s got his handknits to keep him nice and toasty. And he’s wearing the hat I made him in the picture below.

And here is Sam holding the pumpkin he picked out (hah, right) It did have a stem on it, but some little trick-or-treater accidentally kicked it off the porch and it got knocked off. I never got around to carving it, oops. Oh well, I guess I will just leave it on the porch until the snow comes and buries it, like last year.

  1. Oh so adorable! You really have the cutest baby. I think he’s digging the longer sleeves.

    Someday off into the future when/if you have time, can I commission you to make a matching pink hoody for the baby? πŸ™‚

  2. the patterns look pretty basic. Not having many baby patterns I was wondering where to find the pattern for the hat, cardigan and booties. They look really sweet your model. πŸ™‚ what a handsome boy in such warm and one of a kind clothes!

  3. Ariel, they’re pretty basic. Here is the link to the sweater pattern:

    I did make some alterations to the pattern, though, and made it garter stitch, instead of stockinette stitch.
    The booties were a little hard the first time I made the pattern, but once I figured it out it was really easy to remember how to make them again. That’s the nice thing about booties, once you figure out how to make one then you HAVE to make a second one so you ingrain the pattern into your brain. πŸ™‚ Here is the link to the booties:

    I should mention, you do need a Ravelry Account to access both patterns, but if you don’t have one yet you should get one anyway!
