Sweater Vest for Baby Girl and Colors in the Queue
I've been working on a few baby gifts lately. This one is for the brand new daughter of one of my ex-tenants. It started out to be a sweater that will be featured on a Knit-A-Long at Rose Path (Okay, it bears some resemblance to that green one!).
It did morph as I went along. I told my daughter this morning that my knitting was starting to take after my cooking... the recipe is only a starting place.
I had fun changing it up to add a touch of lacework and easy to-put-on sleeves (because I have had some experience trying to coerce tiny arms into a long sleeve)! This way it will fit over a long sleeved t-shirt and will fit easily over a diaper. Plus, it could grow to a shrug/vest.
The yarn is: Berroco's Comfort DK sport weight in color 2733. I have used the Berroco Comfort yarn for Alex's (and my) first baby sweater and a Lacey Tank Dress for his friend, Lila. It is very soft... and washable. ;)
Can you tell I'm really lovin' this color blue?
Our friends, Mike and Patrice gave us this favorite little bird dish. LOVE it! Gotta run. They are due for dinner in about 20 minutes! Hope everyone is battened down and safe! Wishing a good weekend to all.
