Small Set

Its so rewarding to knit infant clothing! The pieces are so small you're able to complete them quickly although the infants do grow out them quickly too, don't they!

Regardless, here's a little pink outfit for my favorite great niece–due in June. I've been holding onto the pattern for a bit now and was happy to have the opportunity to knit it up. I read somewhere that babies heads are usually much bigger in proportion to their bodies so I 'm thinking I may not knit sweaters that you slip over the head anymore. Since I don't have much experience with baby heads I think I'll take their word for it.

I really like the basket weave pattern (k4, p4 for 4 rows and then opposite for 4 rows) that goes down the front of the sweater and around the hat and booties. I've gotten a little bored with my normal bootie pattern and think I'll start using this one for a change.

I tried not to coo over your baby set, but I can't help it! You always take such beautiful photos of your knitting, too, as though it were for a magazine spread.

That's Tim's participation to this blog – he helps me set them up! Sometimes verbally and sometimes by scrunching up his nose when he sees what I'm doing.
