    I have the Puerperium Cardigan on my knit list for the next little niece or nephew to come along. How sweet in the white! I love white on a newborn, even if it isn’t so practical…

  3. I can’t wait to see a photo of the birthday girl in the sweater I love so much. Nice job — it’s looking so beautiful! Happy celebrating.

    I love the sweater Rachel! I really want cast one on for the wee one here, but since it won’t be cooler for months, I have time. Sounds like you are having the best time on vacation…good for you!

    And you are already planning for the next cardie, are you? Don’t say I didn’t warn you…. :)

    Congrats on finishing the sweater! I loved that book! It rang so true; I love how it confirms what I have been thinking and lets me off the crazy hook!

    I love that Puerperium Sweater…it’ll definitely be one more thing to add to my ever-growing list of baby knits. I also love that you’ve chosen fisherman’s wool in a neutral color. I love babies in white and cream. And in bright colors too. Sounds like you are thoroughly enjoying your vacation.

    The sweater looks wonderful. Feels so good to finish:)
    That Simplicity Parenting is such a great you got me thinking about rereading it.

  11. Love the Winnie Cooper!

    And Happy Belated Birthday to your daughter.

    Oooh! I didn’t even think of Fisherman’s wool! I have a ton of that upstairs at the ready; I’ll bet I can get a “Beyond Puerperium” in Asher’s size done up out of what I have on hand… Wonderful idea…

    Happy birthday to your daughter – I can’t wait to see her in the finished sweater! xo

    I have learned that my children are much happier with fewer toys/less clutter around!

  14. Rachel, that book speaks to my soul too- and although I have always believed in the way we do things as a family, sometimes it’s nice to get validation!
    I am loving the Winnie Cooper. . . I want one like it for me, in the same colors you used!

    Sounds like my kind of book. This is how Ive always parented. When our first three were little we home schooled and said no a lot.It feels good to have someone say what you know in your heart…..

  16. Kristi says:

    how sweet are those sweaters! That book sounds great and something I need right now. I’ll add it to my list!

  17. I love the sweater! LOVE! Great work… I can’t wait to see it on your little girl! Let me know how you like the new pattern you are doing now… I really want to knit one up, but don’t have a little one to use it with right now!

    So much buzz around that book, I think I need to read it! And you are quite busy in your projects, wow!! That little baby sweater is sooo cute! Hope your girl had a wonderfully full birthday!!

    Rachel–I have this book and have been waiting to read it–you really just struck a chord with me. Now that my kiddos are out of school for the summer, the pressure is really on to enroll, enroll, enroll. I have been feeling guilted into it but now I am thinking twice…
