Spending most of the weekend working means that you really lose your weekend. I stayed home most of the day today to rest and knit, but could really use another day. Oh the irony of it all, last week I complained about a four day weekend and this week I am begging for one more day.
At any rate, last week I finished something and thought I’d start the week off with a FO!
This is the Baby Bolero from One Skien, knit in a Rowan yarn, I think Rowan Soft Baby. This is for a co-worker and will be gifted along with a matching onesie and pants set (in pink of course) from The Gap. We also pitched in for a group gift, but I have given a handknit to all of the other work babies and didn’t want this one to be an exception. This was an easy pattern, just more time consuming than I expected due to the seaming and picking up of stitches. Hopefully a good block will make the ribbing lay flat.
I thought maybe that was an indication of what color you would be knitting for your own baby. I know I said I would be doing no more baby knitting this year. But I will definitely be knitting for your baby. Just need some ideas about what kind of yarn would be best for your weather.
Oooh! What a cute little baby sweater!
I also got a little excited- no idea how early you find out this stuff. 🙂
It’s gorgeous! I made one for a baby shower and I was amazed how long that teeny tiny sweater took me to make.
