SOAB swap box

Finally I got around posting about the fabulous swap box I received in SOAB swap from lakeside (on Ravelry) and show you all my precious gifts !!

I receive a fabulous kicking bag for my baby, 2 balls of super soft Teddy print yarn, a little angel, a notebook with a sheep on it (!), the cutest clothespins ever, a magnet from Germany , an assortment of tea and most of all : Weleda products for baby and I (how did you know that I could walk miles for them !!!)

Thank you so much lakeside, I am totally spoiled :)

FO : Tri-Peak hat

Yes I actually had time to knit since I gave birth to my daughter... awesome ! :)

Let be honnest, she was sleeping on me and that was only stockinette but I am still very happy to be able to knit a bit, let's see the specs.

with my proud father

Pattern : Baby Tri-Peak Hat by Woolly Wormhead

Needle : 4.5 mm

Yarn : Lana Grossa Teddy print in a lovely varigated color (received in my last swap box) about half a skein (80 yards)

Cast on August 15th and cast off August 17th

Super cute and neat project, perfect to keep a small baby warm outside or inside. the yarn is very very soft and I really enjoy knitting with. I still have about 1.5 skein so I will find another cute project for baby Florence to match, maybe a cardigan ?
