Little Boy Sweater

Sally, don't look.

I finished a knitting project this week for my cousin's baby boy. He'll be about four months at Christmas, and I knitted this in a six month size. He will definitely have room in it!


This was my first project with two colors of yarn. It was a pleasure to learn, and now I want to start a Fair Isle project with thirty colors!


From Debbie Bliss' Simply Baby, the "Striped Sweater" model.

How delicious. I love it...my blue-eyed baby needs one of these! Perhaps it is time to graduate from scarves to sweaters.

Adorable! Now that the weather's cooler, I've been enjoying dressing my boys in sweaters again...but of course, nothing beats a hand-knit baby sweater. Your cousin's baby is a very fortunate little guy! :)

Beautiful. I just started the hooded cardigan for my 9 month old daugher. Love those baby knits!

Anna...I just wanted to stop a moment and say how much I enjoy your blog. It is a visual feast, or if not a feast then certainly a very delightful mid-afternoon tea!

Thanks so much for taking the time to share your creativity...

Melissa said...

That turned out very nicely ;o)

April said...

Oh my goodness, this is lovely. Is there ANYTHING that you don't do well? :)

I have been enjoying your ideas. I get quite a lot of creative ambition when I come to your blog! I have most recently made pillowcases with rick rack in holiday colors with muslin.
