Look at any professional photographer's work and you'll see the ubiquitous Baby Cocoon. They are a must-have for the pros, who find them useful for keeping babies warm, snug, asleep and settled while they take those all-important first portraits. For the rest of us, they are useful as swaddles or sleep-sacks, and for giving that precious little bundle a feeling of security. One skein and one day are all it takes to knit this up!

Eileen Casey is a designer from Ireland now living in beautiful upstate NY - where thankfully there is plenty of sweater weather. She has been knitting since she was 5, and couldn't imagine life without needles in hand. Past projects bring memories of life events back to her as vividly as certain scents do for others. Right now she tries to fit knitting and designing around looking after her two preschool daughters - secretly hoping that soon they'll be able to do the sample knitting for her!
