OMG. Another Baby Sweater? Really?

Ok, so after the From the Queue Friday post from last week, I decided that I needed to make those baby sweaters. Both of them really. I had the exact yarn (same colorway and everything) for the Baby Mine sweater, so I wound that up. And then I proceeded to search for about an hour for the pattern and couldn't find it. I know I bought it at Stitches a couple years ago and I saw it not that long ago, but where it is now is a great mystery.

So, I made a February Baby Sweater instead:This one I made out of a Mill End Socks That Rock that I picked up at Sock Summit. Someone told me it is the "Faulty Dyer" colorway. I had already knit some little kids socks with the skein, but I managed to have more than enough for this sweater.
Instead of the buttons and buttonholes as the pattern indicated, I just attached a chain of single crochet and sewed it back on itself to make a loop. One button later and I was good to go. Of course, this will be going to my niece, C. It's a little big for her still (honestly, I think it would fit an 18 month old), but she will grow into it eventually.

As I mentioned last week, the pattern came from the Knitter's Almanac. I knit this baby in just about 3 days. Easy sweater. Awesome results.

So, if I manage to locate that Baby Mine sweater pattern I may have another baby sweater to show off on the blog soon. We'll see. :)

Happy Knitting!

  4. Hey Jen!

    I was wondering about The Knitters Almanac. I saw that there is an updated version coming out in September w/ pictures, etc. I am not sure if I should wait to get that one or just buy the current one available now. I really want to make that baby sweater! **See, I shouldn't be reading your blog, it gives me too many crazy ideaas!**

    What do you think? I do have another one of Zimmerman's books, but I find it hard at times to follow (call me an idiot)at times. Just curious what your thoughts were!

    Thanks!

  5. So cute. I love the colorway. I just got that EZ book, so I'll have to try it out after I finish my February Lady Sweater.

    Love the new blog look.
