Willamette River Socks by Allison Isaac

Strawberry Patch Baby Set by Laura Wijkowski


For newborns cute enough to eat. Designed by intrepid knitter (and gardener) Laura Wijkowski of Chickasha, Oklahoma and inspired by her memories of picking summer strawberries.

From Beth:

There’s nothing cuter than a newborn dressed in a knitted or crocheted baby cozy for his or her first star turn in front of the camera. Unless it’s an infant dressed like a yummy piece of fruit!
This adorable diaper cover, booties and hat set will make a very lucky baby look good enough to eat. Designed by Oklahoman Laura Wijkowski, this project is perfect for a baby shower gift. Knit in nearly-indestructible Cascade 220 Superwash, it will last through generations of kids.
