1  Re: Baby items knit-a-long? in Knitalongs by sittenknitten on: December 05, 2006 06:14:33 AM
I've been working on baby items for months... was participating in this KAL and didn't even know it  Grin. Our newest grandchild (#4) and first granddaughter was born 2 weeks ago today. I'm on my second ugg bootie with the matching cap to go, and then I * AM * TAKING * A * BREAK from knitting baby items!













Awwww, she's kinda cute, I guess it was worth it.  Cheesy

2  Baby Cardigan & Blanket FOs in Knitting: Completed Projects by sittenknitten on: November 14, 2006 08:58:27 AM
With a new granddaughter due any day now, I've been busy knitting for her (first girl grandchild after 3 boys!)

The Pure & Simple Cardigan from Weekend Knitting is in Allhemp 6 from Hemp for Knitting.The hemp is stiff and has no stretch, but as soon as I finished it I popped it into the wash with a load of jeans (dryer too) and it's so soft now, with a very nice drape. Yes, I know it's for a girl, but girls can wear blue, too (and everything she's already gotten is either pink or white.) Truthfully, I bought the blue before we knew she would be a girl, the odds of a girl after so many boys were pretty small.  Grin



This very girlish blanket, Springtime Patchwork from Total Baby Knits by Candy Jensen, seemed like an easy project. Then I laid out all those squares and saw all those ends and all those seams... yikes! It just took some patience. The crocheted border was a stretch for me, but I used a reference book and actually got the stitches called for. I haven't blocked it yet: would it even do any good? It's in TLC Cotton Plus, also machine wash & dry.



Edited to fix links and resize photos.  Wink

FWIW, here's a photo "sans sleeves." The Patons SWS has knit up nicely. I was concerned that the striping might come out in some odd way, but I'm pretty happy with it. On to the sleeves!
