When I posted the pic of the first baby cardi that I made for dearest granddaughter, Marguerite asked how many sweaters this baby was going to have? The answer, I guess, is as many as I get around to making. Anyway, here is the latest little knit off the needles.
I started this little cardi before we knew that dearest grandbaby is a girl so used Dream in Color Smooshy yarn in the gender neutral Beach Fog colorway and opted for the cabled version rather than the lace one. As it wasn't finished before we found out that a little girl would be the recipient, I used the picot hems to make it a bit more feminine. This is the 6-12 month size so will hopefully get some wear before it is outgrown. I'm pleased with this knit and the pattern is well-written and very versatile so I highly recommend it!
I pulled out some treasures that had been in storage so that they could be used again. This blanket was knit for me when I was a baby. I don't know who made it and will have to look for my baby book to see if mom noted it there.
The pink edging and little rosettes are crocheted. It's very sweet. I washed it carefully because there weren't superwash wools widely available in the 1950's and this is definitely wool. You can see the color difference between the natural white wool and the white acrylic sweater in the next photo.
My mom made this tiny cardi when we were waiting to adopt a baby.
Geoff wore this little outfit home from the hospital. Well, he actually only wore it for a very short time. We traveled to Saskatoon for him and stopped for lunch at McDonald's there before hitting the highway for the 2 1/2 hour ride home. I changed his diaper then and was too new at the parenting-of-a-baby-boy routine (ie: keep it covered) to prevent him from peeing all over the front of his little outfit requiring a change in clothes. Valuable lesson learned.
