There’s something about knitting for babies. The small scale, the sweet details, the softest of the soft yarn. And the hope. The dreams and happy thoughts that you knit into each stitch for the baby as you work. It’s a very special thing.
With that in mind, I hoped to knit one more sweater for our babe before the holidays, birthdays, and dues dates swept us away in a sea of “where did the time go?”.
I chose this yarn because of the colors, pure and simple. It is also incredibly, unbelievably soft, perfect for baby. Each stripe was a pleasure to knit as the soft tealy blues eased from light to dark. In some light, two adjacent colors looked identical. Then I’d work on the sweater somewhere else, and the line would be so crisp I’d wonder how I ever thought they were the same. Hmmm.
This wee sweater knit up pretty fast, and now it waits, in the freshly painted and arranged baby room, for its owner to arrive. A few weeks to go yet, which means there will most likely be more baby knitting. Oh yes, I think there just might be more baby knitting.
