Itty bitty knits and other tidbitsPosted: March 4, 2012
Baby sweaters count, don’t they? In my goal to make 12 sweaters this year, I was wondering if baby sweaters count. It seems so many of my friends had babies these past few months that I have been caught up making teeny tiny sweaters. (I count 3 so far, and one is due the end of this month, and another two in a few more months.)
So here is the first one I made. I didn’t want to add buttons fearing a choking hazard and I accidentally shrunk it. Heh… It was on my desk along with a hoodie of mine and well, I scooped both up and put them in the washing machine. It wasn’t until I was folding clothes did I find this adorable sweater among my black shirts and hoodies. (I’m glad it wasn’t with the lighter clothing.)
As babies sizes vary so much, I don’t know if my friends’ baby will get much use out of it but I hope they like it. I started making this sweater before they had their little girl, so I wasn’t able take measurements of the baby’s chest.
I have also been working on a top down sweater for myself. Sadly, the color is being discounted and that makes me sad because there are very few yellows that I like. Growing up, my mother claimed that yellows really didn’t suit the Asian complexion and made it look like it had sallow pallor to it. I suppose that is why I have an aversion to most yellows but I made an exception.
I had already finished my first sweater of the year but all it is lacking are some buttons. Until I get/sew some on, photographic evidence of it is still pending. ^.^
PS. I got a camera as a gift for xmas this year. So be prepared to be bombarded with some random pictures.
