I have finally finished my Blossom:



I made the smallest size and used Jaegar Baby Merino yarn in the purple/lilac varigated colourway.

because of the varigated yarn I opted not to do the embroidery, and instead of using one strand of thicker ribbon I used 2 strands of much thinner stuff (0.5mm wide ribbon) one strand lilac one strand purple to tie it closed.....

tis very, very cute!

Aw, what an adorable 'Blossom'.  Cheesy
I'm undecided on whether to make up 'Blossom' or, Knitty's 'Anouk'.
Would anybody happen to know, which one is an easier knit? I've only been knitting for around 5 months now.
I can use circulars, dpn's, basic stitches, inc., and dec. But if I run into any problems, I have nobody to help me out. Instead of Intarsia on the pockets of 'Anouk', I'd probably do backstitch instead.
That's why I'm curious which one would be the easiest to do.
I'd appreciate any feedback on this..... Thanks a bunch.  Grin

Tajha, your blossom came out much better than mine!  How cute!

queen_gueneviere: I would guess Blossom is easier, depending on how you feel about stitching!

Blossom was one of the first 'garment' knits I did. I learned a lot, including how to mattress stitch the seams. I never tried Anouk, but Blossom was a very simple knit, so I'd have to recommends that.

I'll have to try and find the pictures of the one I made. It was one of my first good knitted projects, so the gauge was really off and I didn't pick the best yarn, but it was pretty. I don't know if the person I gave it to ever put it on her little girl tho.  Undecided

Thanks for the suggestions. Actually I had to use mattress stitch on something last night, for the first time. It was a disaster. lol.
I guess it takes time and practice.  Roll Eyes
I hope you find the photo of your Blossom. I'd like to see it.

Here's mine.  I also did not gauge, messed up the ribbing on the wrong side and knit an ugly flower for it.  *laughing*  I loved the yarn though!  Have to wait to see when/if it fits Evie as she's not yet born.
