As many of you are aware, the A Great Yarn family gained a new member in June. In the absence of a formal name, we referred to our first grandchild as “Friday’s Child,” since he was born on Friday, June 14th. His parents have subsequently decided to name him “Paxton,” partly because “Pax” is Latin for peace, and partly because it’s a pretty cool name.
To celebrate the occasion, two of A Great Yarn’s great staff – Susan Bartels and Antonia DaSilvia – were kind enough do design baby garments named for Paxton. Susan’s selection was a beautiful blue and white sweater knitted using a wool/cotton blend yarn, and Antonia’s hat was knitted using the same yarn and colors.
If anyone would like the patterns for the “Paxton Sweater” and the “Paxton Hat” they are available in the shop.
Honestly, is there a nicer thing someone could go for a new baby that design them a sweater and a hat? Thanks Susan and Antonia.
