Knit a Baby Beard!

What's cuter than a little kid in a hand-knit beard? Not much!

You can knit this adorable little Santa beard for a baby or kid in your life. Better yet, knit them for all the kiddos and take the cutest Christmas card on Earth! 

The Baby Beard knitting pattern is available on Ravelry for just $2 and comes in two sizes, baby and toddler. Knit using Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted yarn, this beard is soft and washable and one skein makes two baby-sized beards! Those twins are gonna win at Christmas.

Get a kit! The Baby Beard is designed by our friends at PostStitch and you can get a complete kit that comes with the pattern and one ball of Wooly Worsted yarn packed in a sweet holiday bag. The Baby Beard Kit is available at poststitchbox.com for $12. Fun!

Drawn to Knit

I spent some time in LA today visiting some yarn stores – including the most beautiful color organized store, Knit Culture – and took a break to hang out and knit. I was relaxing, soaking up the sun when an artist approached me and asked if he could draw me knitting. I was flattered and said yes!

I kept knitting under the palm trees. We chatted and he sketched away. I took a lot of figure drawing classes in college but was never the subject model so it was kind of fun. While we sat there I noticed him checking my hair and examining the background. I wondered what would appear on the paper. After about 15 minutes he was done!

I love it! Now I'll always have a little reminder of how nice it is to take a break and knit. Ahhh...
