LMKG #17 & 18: Two cuties in Goa.

Muench Goa has been with Loops since the very beginning. I originally brought it in to make the Sweet Baby Cardigan and Hat from Suss Cousin's book, Hollywood Knits. The Goa is a chunky cotton blend with a bouncy squishiness that almost feels like fleece when it's knitted up.

Alas, all good things must come to an end, and it is time for Goa to make way for other new fabulous yarns at Loops. Right now, it's on sale 30% off in-store. So I found two adorable, quick-knit projects that you can whip up for the little cutie in your life.

The first is this Bunny Baby Blanket, a little wubbie for tiny hands to clutch. It should take two skeins of Goa:

The second is the mega-cute Ribbons Hat, from the book Itty Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson. Most of you, I'm sure, have this in your library. If not, you can find the book here on All you will need is one ball of Goa and of course, ribbons! The photo of this sweet baby is by "cguggs" on ravelry:

P.S. Goa is not in our online store, but feel free to call toll-free 1-877-LOOPSOK and we can help you find a great color. Alternatively, try either of these patterns in Puffin - which is available online here. The yardage is comparable to Goa and it is equally squishy - and washable!
