Zoom Zoom

April 9, 2013

I have just a few weeks to knit for the little man who will be born next month, as always, time just zoomed by! So today I rummage trough my yarn, I was looking for the baby wool and cotton I knew was there  somewhere.  And,  I started a sweater:

I had a few skeins of each: yellow, green and off white in Stork (Dalegarn) cotton.  I haven’t knit with cotton for forever it seems but this particular yarn is nice to knit with and the colors so sweet, perfect for a teeny tiny baby sweater.

Looking through Ravelry for patterns I of course found a truckload of cute ones……most baby clothes are adorable to begin with…….but my god, the combination of cute baby patterns (and babies modeling them) and soft, sweet colored yarn………..just too much for me!

I managed to pick a sweater out, but then came the problem of deciding how to arrange the colors together………I was so indecisive it was ridiculous and ended up wasting time I could have used to knit………since I only have a few weeks to get this knitting done I did the only logical thing, had Othinn decide for me…:)

The pattern is called Latte Baby Sweater and can be found on a Danish blog, it is only in Danish, those who don’t read it can at least enjoy the cute pictures:)

Every time I start a baby knit I wonder: why don’t I knit more of these tiny things!  It goes so fast, instant gratification on needles!  I am already up to the armholes, only spent a few min here and there knitting to day………LOVE IT!

    Those colors are so pretty. I love knitting for babies with cotton it just seems lighter and still soft without the extra fuzzyness.

      These soft colors are perfect for a summer baby:) I agree, soft baby cotton is lovely to work with!

    I like the pattern you chose. I love striped garments. Good luck.
