I’ve been talking with my crafting group about FiberKind - if you see new people they are probably my friends. :joy:

Need a recommendation:
I am looking for a book (preferred) or a trustworthy website that gives garment dimensions for designing my own baby and toddler clothes. To make things for my granddaughter.
I am pretty good at designing based on my gauge so I don’t need it too dumbed down, just a reference resource. All I am finding are pattern collections. I tried 2 LYS and nothing available in store (one told me to go Google it🙄)
I know Ann Budd has published “Knitters Handy Guide” books with basic patterns at different gauges. Any opinions on that series? Or other great ideas?

I have been using this site for size references for a couple of years now and found it to be fairly reliable. They also have men’s and women’s size charts and sock and hat size charts for babies to adults.

If anyone is interested, the newest issue of Blocked magazine is up! I think it is our best one so far and has some great stuff in it!

I have used the Ann Budd books many times. The only comment I have is that the preemie sized hats seem large, everything else is fine.

A bit of Hardanger in progress, primarily to test out buttonhole edging and its stability. I’m looking forward to the cut work! For some reason I hate doing eyelets though… glad they’re all done for this piece.

I just finished this piece I have had in progress for a little while. :slight_smile: I might add another border when I get home. We’ll see.
