Sweater for Chloe

Sweater for Chloe
Originally uploaded by wittyknits
Finally finished this one. A very quick knit, but I am not one for finishing things up lately, especially if it involves the sewing on of buttons, as evidenced by several projects indicated at 95% finished in my ravelry notebook.

In any case, I'm going to mail this off to Chloe soon, even if it'll be a little while before she fits into it.

Pattern: Baby's Pure & Simple Pullover from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Bubblegum
Size 8 needles

The Outfit so Cute it Hurts

I've started on the cutest outfit ever, for my niece Maya. I've wanted to make Anouk from Knitty (by Kate Gilbert) for several years, but haven't known any little girls of the appropriate age. Now it seems there's a baby boom among my friends and family, and wouldn't you know, quite a few little girls.

I stashed some Pakucho Cotton a few years ago for a dress for myself that never materialized, but I got this crazy color scheme in my head for this and I'm using this for Maya's Outfit instead.

The whole outfit will be:
Baby Merry Janes by bekah.knits
Child's Cotton Hat from Weekend Knitting

I'm using the Pakucho Cotton, Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Old Rose (doubled as necessary) and yellow and teal kitchen cotton for the other contrast. The socks of the Merry Janes, the icord in the hat will both be the Old Rose. I think this will be ridiculously cute. Can't wait! (Even if, in my excitement yesterday, I completely screwed up the first bootie. Sheesh.)

Progress thus far:

Maya's Shoe Booties....begin!
