Mazel Tov and baby knitting
i have finally gotten to a stage in life where everyone else is having the babies and i just get to do the knitting! the moms labours were 30-46 hrs, so i will take the knitting job any day!
Quentin, Nehemiah and Jeremiah were all born in the last month. which meant baby sweaters blankets, socks and hats to knit.
my favourite baby sweater right now is Jonah Rav Link
i made mine from classic silk which i am hoping wont be a hassel for the mama to clean (sand coloured in the photo)
then i ran out of yarn for the border of the blue blanket...thinking of sewing a satin ribbon border on, good for babies to suck on right?
the last sweater is iceling, the baby version from the knitty pattern, from stolen stitches, it will have a shwal colour to curl op over the babies ears.
i added the stripes....we will see how it turns out.
but i love using my "glass" needles on this project. (glasspens.com)
fave baby patterns? please share!
