Baby days


I have so much enjoyed seeing the baby sweaters, but I had no excuse to knit one. Until now. My cousin gave birth to a little girl and I wasted no time in breaking out the sticks. It took just a weekend of intense but broken knitting. I added a crochet pico edge. I loved the pattern, although next time I would add an inch. There is pattern info about the matching hat and booties on my blog, http://knitaway.blogspot.com.

That's a lovely baby set! I especially like your use of 2 different colours, and the embellishments. Your cousin should certainly be happy to receive it!
 
That is by far the cutest little baby kimono that I've ever seen! Nice job!
 
THAT IS SO CUTE! :o)

The colors and buttons and matching hat: Wow!

You handled your design well as the knitting "Slight of Hand" is not obvious.It is always a guessing game when you make your first item-Kimono-as to how much yarn a section will take. The ombres have less yardage than the solids. I am working on a SnC kimono, 1st 4 garter rows(back) were solid-the rest of the body and arms were ombre. On the front I worked from both ends of the ball and stopped the color for both sides together The ombre made it to the last 4 garter rows (both front sections)..whew! Then I added the solid so there was a true match up.Yarn used-2 ombre, part of 1 solid. Next Kimono I make with ombre I will make sure to have 3 balls at hand.
