Welcome Home Baby with Ozark

In this photo is Grandpa Gentzsch with my newborn* son Oliver, who's wearing one of the adorable little pods, made by Tricia Drake.  Tricia authored a book with patterns for all kinds of cuddly gear for newborns called "Welcoming Home Baby the Handcrafted Way".

From Tricia's Etsy shop"My book of original knitting patterns, "Welcoming Home Baby the Handcrafted Way", by Tricia Drake, was released in March 2011 and as of June 2012 is in its second reprint with over 19,000 copies in press worldwide. The book features 20 knitting patterns for newborn photography props, chunky cocoons, cozy pods, mohair wraps, and plenty of funky handknit hats."

If you haven't seen the book, you are missing a wonderful dose of scrumptious babies in adorable knits.

*Oliver was born in September 2010, so the picture is nearly a couple of years old! Where I have trouble posting a picture to a blog, Tricia is mother to seven and still writes a book! Amazing.
