Vibrant Baby Kimono
I'm so excited to see all the great work being inspired by this book...what a wonderful thing! This is my version of the Baby Kimono. I knit it from Sugar and Cream yarn. I also just threaded the ribbon through the left side and then through the eyelet edge so that the ribbons would be removable for washing. I was also a little tired of sewing at that point, so really it was a win-win! I think the colors are perfect for a Leilani, which is my niece's name...I increased the cast-on stitches to 50, and made it proportionally bigger so that she'll have to grow into it a little. Better too big than too small!
It's great that so many of us are working on this project...I love seeing all the different ones!
