baby love

January 20, 2010

This is what you can do with a bag of Baby Cashmerino and a week in Mexico!

These adorable baby sweaters are destined to belong to two little ones who will soon be in my circle of friends; one this very month (Brooklyn), and the other in early spring (San Diego). The third sweater is a handy spare to have in my stash. Baby sweaters are perfect projects to take on trips, compact and simple. They went everywhere with me, plane of course, poolside of course, back in my room; sometimes I didn't even realize I was knitting!

The two in the foreground were knit top down, a style that has become a favorite here at Casa Knitionary (and the pattern is free here). The tiny pullover in the background is a Debbie Bliss pattern from her first book. Knitting these just made me happy!

Each took under three skeins, sized for 3-6 mos. using a peachy coral color (#4) that is now discontinued and was bought on super sale somewhere on ebay. I have 3 full skeins left, enough for yet another sweater or booties and hats.

I'll post pictures on Ravelry of these sweaters modeled by their owners soon I hope!

I am rounding the corner of finishing quite a few projects and will be posting again soon.

  1. Those are adorable baby sweaters! Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting...:)

  2. Beautiful color! Something about eensy weensy knitted things makes me all mushy inside. I went to a friends' baby shower last year, and was totally in awe of all the hand-knit clothes she received. Someday, someday I'll take up knitting... For now, though, I sew.
