Good Thing They Take Nine Months To Hatch

June 12th

Knitting for wee ones takes a long time. If you are so inclined, I highly recommend splurging on your favorite yarn, in a color you truly love. You’ll be feeling this run through your fingers and staring at the hue for a bit — you might as well make it enjoyable.
Yellow is one of my faves. I also love the ribbon I used for the tie — a gift from Lyn. This little beauty is headed off to a new babe scheduled for delivery next month.

So my edges aren’t perfect, but at least I got rid of that third arm. (Thank you Sarah!)
I have some pretty cotton ribbon I am considering using to make another one of these. I’m going to up the needle size too and play with the gage. Knitting is a lot like baking — once you get the basics, you can fiddle with the ingredients until they meet your tastes.

  1. Looks great Kelli!

    The uneven edge is probably related to you NOT slipping the first stitch of every row.

  2. Well, I think it’s beautiful — and will probably inspire a hundred more of these babies until they’re perfected. Which pattern did you use? God knows there’s a million babies hatching around here and I’m plum out of ideas for handcrafty gifts. One more thing — where did Lyn get your tags? I’ve been looking around and haven’t found any good ones.
