I have been quite the slacker when it comes to knitting any baby gifts for friends, but I’m not being too hard on myself. The babies grow too quickly, and unless they’re a knitter themselves, I’d rather just get people what they need, and spend my free time doing the 27 other things that I always end up committing myself to.
I made an exception for my fellow knitting friend, Olivia and her new daughter, Anna. It’s a good thing I went ahead and made the 12 month old size, so she can wear it in late spring or cool summer nights. Mind you, her baby was born in June, this sweater was finished in October, and I just blocked it yesterday.
The pattern is the Baby Jacket with Moss Stitch Edges from Rosie’s Yarn Cellar and the yarn is Ella Rae that I loved, but never got around to using for myself.
I think this little girl will enjoy the not-too girly but fun pinks, purples and oranges. If not, she can’t really talk yet, so I will never know! I jest…
