more baby knitting

Here’s my latest knitting project – this cute little sweater for Baby Madeline. I thought this pattern was absolutely adorable, and it was pretty easy to knit. I also learned a new skill with the wrap-type neckline (and I always like to pick up new skills).

Pattern: Seamless Kimono Sweater by Jacki Kelly
Yarn: Berroco Touché (7931)
Needles: US 6 (4.0mm)

I am looking forward to the day when I can knit things for my own child. I suppose I could do some gender-neutral non-clothing knitting now if the urge really strikes me, but we don’t know what gender the child will be, or the age, or the time of year when he or she will come home, so that makes it a bit difficult to knit a sweater, for example. I’ll just have to start building a queue of patterns to have ready to go.

Next up: My first attempt at a sweater for myself!

    Kelly, you are a fabulous knitter! I love this darling sweater. Hmmm, I am hosting our knitting group this weekend so I need to think of a project pronto. It's been a long while since I picked up the needles.

    Also, the sweater you are going to knit for yourself is AWESOME, so cute!

    just found your blog a few days ago and i really really like it!

    when i was pregnant with my son – before i knew his gender – i knit an open front hoodie meant for a 2 year old in red popcorn stitch. it seemed perfect for boys and girls the red had fleckes of yellow and white and other colors i think. when he was wee (born almost 10 pounds – so not that wee) i layed it in his car seat or carriage like a blanket that wrapped around him and then he just wore it for nearly three years.

    i miss the little person stuff – it knits so quickly!

    nice to see this beautiful little sweater – lucky little girl!

    Thanks, everyone!

    E – I actually took a "How to Knit" class at a yarn store about 2.5 years ago after a friend started knitting. I find it really relaxing and it's fun to make cute little things like this. I haven't done anything terribly complex yet (although the next project is looking pretty daunting to me right now).

    I love that little sweater! It is so sweet. And I'm swooning over the sweater you are going to make for yourself! That is beautiful! I can' wait to see how it turns out! I wish I could knit. 😦

    Wow, that is wonderful…so cute. I love the color too. I tried my hand at knitting earlier this year. It didn't take. I had one private lesson and didn't go back. We also had a lot going on at the time, so I couldn't practice as much as I would have liked. Maybe I'll give it another try.
