Mason Dixon Layette
I call it the Mason Dixon Layette. It contains the Heartbreakingly Cute Kimino, the Baby Bib of Love, and the Baby Genius Burp Rag. To round out this gift I made booties and a hat. The color of the hat and bib and booties is S&C Swimming Pool. The kimino is S&C Hot Blue, the burp rag is S&C Hot Blue and White. I had never made booties before this or anything like the kimino. I found bits and peices of the Kimino pattern confusing but I understood what it was getting at so it turned out alright. These are for a co-workers new grand baby due in October. It is supposed to be a boy, I like these non-traditional shades of blue as an alternative to true blue or powder blue.
I also have a white Asorba Bath Mat on the needles and the other day I bought some Sage and Eggplant Euroflax Linen. Very pretty. I've done the ball band and mason dixon round wash cloths. I can't believe how many patterns I'm making from this book. I only learned to knit earlier this year and after looking at other knitting books I have decided that the Mason Dixon book makes knitting seem "accessable". Many of the patterns I look at and think "I can do that!". Plus the the photos in the book are lovely.
Thanks for looking, Amy
