We are absolutely thrilled to be able to share the project that we've been beavering away on for the last 6 months...
The Scrumptious Baby Collection arrived back from the printers last week, and we are really proud of it! The book features eight designs for newborns through to 2 year olds, with cardigans, dungarees, hats, legwarmers and an heirloom lace shawl.
We worked with some of our favourite designers again: Kyoko Nakayoshi (it's her Temari kimono top above), Belinda Boaden, Mélanie Edgar and Judy Furlong. They all did us proud with the beautiful garments and accessories that they created.
These Ensar dungarees (designed by Mélanie),were a complete hit on the photoshoot. Each of the kids that modelled them seemed to love them (or perhaps more importantly, their parents did!). The long run of buttons means that you can change a nappy without having to take the whole thing off.
I love the Corlyna set that Belinda designed. Who knew that baby legwarmers would be such a hit? They are absolutely brilliant. Much better than booties as they actually stay on active little people legs without falling off!
Judy Furlong created this stunning lace shawl for the collection. It's a perfect Christening shawl and would be treasured by the whole family. It would also make a beautiful shawl for everyday wear, done in a different colour.
As with the last collection, this was a real team effort and we couldn't have done it without everyone's hard work. Particular thanks must go again to Amanda France for her lovely photography and brilliant baby-wrangling skills!
You can see all of the designs on the book's Ravelry page, along with more information about sizing and lots more pictures. You'll find those pages here: The Scrumptious Baby Collection on Ravelry.
The garments and accessories all use Fyberspates Scrumptious 4ply/sport (which is machine washable), apart from the lace shawl which uses 1 hank of Scrumptious Lace. If tyou'd like to purchase a copy of the book, then do ask at your local yarn shop. Here is a list of current Fyberspates retailers. If you are in the US, then Lantern Moon distributes the yarn and books, so do contact them to find your local reatailer. You can also purchase the book directly from us at Fyberspates.
