I love knitting for babies, there's just something special about it - don't you think???....

And if I had to pick a favourite pattern for a newborn it would have to be the 'Pebble'...

I love the way this little vest is designed to open out flat - it makes those sometimes awkward newborn  change times seem oh so much more simpler.....

If you've followed this blog for a while you'll know that this is my 3rd 'Pebble'. This one I've made for a lady who has been nothing but warm and generous to me since we met a few years back. She and her family have welcomed the most sweetest little girl, Tilly J, into the world on a very special day - Xmas Day!!!

So with another knitted project off the needles a new one has begun... This time using some scrummy silk/cashmere and a gorgeous Kirsten Kapur pattern - I can't wait to tell you all about this new yarn once this project is finished...

but until then - Happy Knitting!!!


  1. This is the prettiest little vest Jodie :)

  2. That is so cute! I also love knitting for babies....whats not to love? Hee Hee

    I am doing the ttl mystery sock KAL are you doing that? I have also just bought Cladonia, so gorgeous! How to choose one of her patterns??? they are all just fabulous!

    Can't wait to see photos :-)

  3. What a thoughtful and beautiful gift and those "pebbles" are not only pretty but practical too! Love the buttons!
    It's so weird because you posted on Friday January, 27th and it's still Thursday here! Plus you're having Summer and we're having Winter. We really are a half a world away from each other! But we have LOTS in common! Beautiful little vest for a beautiful little baby, I'm sure.
    Have a great weekend!

  4. One lucky little lady is going to look beautiful in that. I love the buttons too, so sweet. Must have a go at knitting one of these, I always think a newborn will look so so cute wearing one! x

  5. Very cute Jodie. I have my own precious little Christmas Day daughter so I know how lucky your friend feels.
    I'm looking forward to seeing your next project.

  6. Super cute Jodie. I'm sure it will be much appreciated.

  7. Have gotten behind on all my friendly blogs. The shawl you posted is lovely, and the sweet treats look yummy. This baby vest is so darn cute. My oldest was born on Christmas Eve and was the best Christmas gift ever. Your friend is lucky to have a friend like you who is thoughtful enough to make this special gift for her baby. I love the buttons. I need to re-read the post to see if there is a pattern??
    We have snow and cold. Won't be long though, Spring is right around the corner. Take care.

  8. The vest is cute and I love those buttons. Do you stock them?
    Looking forward to seeing what the yarn becomes and what it is:)

  9. Oh Jodie, you are way too kind i am absolutely inlove with Tillie's very own little pebble, i look forward to showing her off in the beautiful vest. THANKYOU, THANKYOU, THANKYOU for your kind words you are turely a beautiful soul :):):)

  10. What a cute vest. Dont you just love that pattern!?

  11. My heart skipped a beat when I read the first few lines of this post..."those of you who have followed my blog for a while will know this is my third "pebble"....well I thought you were telling us you were expecting a third "pebble" hahaha and that I had missed the announcement! I knew I had been slack on my blog reading, but gee!! Glad you have been well :-)
