@ people who have experience with knitting and with babies: what items are better home-knit than store bought?
And: any favourite patterns?

Today's tea: Lenneth's Dazzling Lights! A blend for one of my Watchers, Lenneth Morelli. It's a blend of green teas and spearmint, plus candy cane bits for Lenn's sweet tooth. :-D Fun and refreshing!
Today's knit: The first row of kittens has emerged! They do look a lot like foxes thus far, maybe because of the shade of orange I started with? But there is a row of brown (background color) kittens stacked right on top of them, and then after that will be a second shade of orange kittens, and so on!
Pattern: Cascading Kittens

I don't understand why knitting and like getting hand knitted clothes was so demonized when we were kids
I can remember so many cartoons where grandmas would be like "here's a sweater i made for you" and the kid would treat it like the worst fucking curse
Like. My guy. Being given something that someone put so much time and effort and money into (because it takes time effort and money to make a good quality garment) is literally so cool. Shut the fuck up.

OK! The person for whom I'm making the DNA Pullover was very enthusiastic about this version of the DNA cable, so this is the one I'm going with. :)

Here is the link to the chart I made on Stitch Fiddle. Like the original, it's 17 stitches wide, so you should be able to just use it in place of the DNA cable chart that comes with Andrea Cull's DNA Pullover pattern. For those who would like to make a DNA sweater with DNA cables that actually look like DNA.

This took surprisingly long to finish but it is off the needles! Just in time for... summer...
The Tentacula Hat by Jenny Noto uses a really neat stitch that's pretty easy to memorize and creates this texture.
Knit in Malabrigo Rios in Azules (there's more green than is coming through in the photos).

i'm pretty proud of these, my favorite is the orange bc as we all know oranges are gay but also getting the shape of that lemon down was so satisfying 🥰

Friendly reminder that there are no knitting police!
It doesn’t matter how you knit, whether you use DPNs, circulars, DPNs, wool, acrylic, cotton, whether you knit your sweaters top-down or in parts and seam them, if you start your socks at the toe or at the cuff and if you have twenty WIPs at once or go one by one. 
This goes for crochet as well.

Does knitblr know about archive.org?
The same site that runs the Wayback Machine also has a large online free library!
You can make a free account and check out old books and magazines and other media. It's basically like checking out books from your local library.
That includes knitting books, magazines, and patterns. (It's also all either really old or out of print things so you can't buy most of them nowadays anyway)

If you like old knitting (or other crafts!) patterns this is a great place to look.

Forgot to include this with today's tea & knit post but here's a preview of what I've been knitting while waiting for the Vex Hearts Percy Cowl to finish drying on the blocking board. :-D Any guesses what I'm making here?
