I suppose it comes with the age group – a few years ago, everyone was getting married. Now? Everyone is having babies. That means a lot of pint-sized knitting projects that fly off the needles and make me all happy with the instant gratification. The latest project, which I can now reveal now that I know it has been received.
Pattern: Pea Pod Baby Sweater
Designer: Kate Gilbert
Needles: US 5 (3.75mm)
Yarn: Cascade Cotton Rich DK

This was a pretty quick knit! The yarn is a great cotton/nylon blend which is, IMHO, a great summer/baby yarn since it’s easy to wash and maintain. Blue for the baby boy who was born a few weeks ago, and naturally, I didn’t want a girly sort of lace and figured that the leaves provided just enough interest without going overboard. Buttons were acquired from Philadelphia’s Fabric Row, specifically the Pennsylvania Fabric Outlet. It really looks fabulous in person, and I can’t wait to get photos of the little guy wearing it!
There was a trip to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival this weekend and I still have yet to photograph my precious acquisitions since it’s been raining for what, nine days straight?! So, I’ll hold off on the update for that and you’ll hear about it when there’s sun again. 🙂
