The first month with a newborn is not the easiest… but the newest Tin Can Knits baby, Neve, has been a little dear (most of the time).
Between crying and cuddles, Emily has thoroughly enjoyed #minimemademay and snapped plenty of pics of the baby wardrobe!
Despite yawns and afternoon naps, Emily had a fabulous time dressing up her little darling in the tiny newborn outfits that she’d spent so much time preparing.
Want to learn more about the pattern, yarns, size and modifications we’ve used to create these knits? Lately we’ve been keeping better track of our personal knits, and posting all the project details on Ravelry – check it out!
Lace is, of course, one of Emily’s favourite things… So a little Prairie Fire pullover was a necessary knit!
Neve was more than a pound bigger than Emily’s first baby, Max… so some of the tiny knits didn’t last for very long!
Bodhi joined in the fun, showing off her surfer hair and her new Neon Clayoquot Toque!
Max showed off his handmade wardrobe too (luckily Edinburgh is cold enough for toques and sweaters in May!).
Not to be outdone by the little ones, the eldest of the Tin Can Knits ‘mini’ clan, Hunter, is getting ready to start Kindergarten in her new Little Coastal Pullover (design by Hannah Fettig, yarn is Madelinetosh Vintage in ‘cousteau’, all the details in this blog post).
And lastly… Emily also rocked the handmade wardrobe this month, celebrating her post-partem ‘Mammalicious’ figure (the principle being if you can’t avoid it, own it!).
Do you have plans to add to your ‘memade’ or ‘minimemade’ wardrobe this year?

All the hand knits are gorgeous, but what makes them really special is what’s in them. LOVE all your adorable pics.

Thanks so much! Y’all are Rock Stars as far as I’m concerned. Your patterns and Diane Soucy’s are the ones I turn to for simple, lovely knit items.

I love all the pictures of sweaters, hats and babies. I have an Antler sweater for myself on my needles right now. I really enjoy your patterns. Carol S.

There are too many adorable designs here! On the most adorable baby!! What is the pattern for the little striped, v-neck cardigan? Thank you.

It is sort of our Harvest cardigan. Emily made the button band a little smaller, added stripes, and knit it in a fingering weight yarn
