A Finished Layette and Some BackTack Fabric

garter stitch baby outfitPingouin 149 layetteThe Pebbles layette has been finished, wrapped and delivered to the baby shower. I'm pleased with the way it turned out. The details: Pattern from Pingouin 149 layette book. The models are from the set called Amandine's room, number 10 trousers, 11 pull-on hat and 12 raglan cardigan. These are all simple garter stitch baby garments. I used a dk weight yarn instead of fingering weight, so I used my calculator to translate the pattern to my gauge. Yarn is Kraemer Yarns Little Lehigh Pebbles.

black and white fabricsI was shopping for those blue heart-shaped buttons for the garter stitch baby jacket when I saw these fat quarters sitting in the basket over at Beverly's. I grabbed them up of course. This is exactly the sort of thing that I need for my BackTack3 project. I don't know what I will be making for Finny just yet, but these pieces of fabric do inspire ideas, don't you think?
