Baby Sweater

I am working on a baby sweater pattern. Perhaps matching hat, leggings, mittens, booties, socks who knows what will come out of this work in progess. Last year I was very proud, as I always am, to be included as a designer with Cabin Fever the Knitting Sisters ( http://www.cabinfever.ca/ and http://cabinfeverknittingdesigns.blogspot.com/ ).

Deb, Dana and myself each created a baby blanket and all three were published as one pattern (Three Baby Blankets #801). My contribution was a reversible twisted stitch blanket. We discussed over dinner one night that we should each create a matching baby garment pattern to match our blankets. That was some time ago but now I have the urge to do it. I am using stash yarn (DK Marble) to work out the kinks. The first(of several no doubt) sample is in a three month size. See my progess in the pictures. I am also working the blanket as well, as, I do have a niece expecting a baby and it will be put to loving use I am sure. My youngest grandchild is 13 now so it has been a while since a new baby has arrived in my immediate family.

Signing out once again

P. S. Please leave a comment and vote in my poll. I personally love fingering the best but usually work in DK as it is more practical.

  1. I love the baby sweater. it looks great in that yarn with the colour changes. I know it has cable twists in it but I can't see them so I'm waiting for a close up.
