Some Babies’ Things

There seems to have been a surge in baby arrivals amongst my friends. Has it been happening for you too? And while no more babies will be arriving in this house there have been lots of babies’ things. So this week I thought I’d show you some baby stuff I’ve been working on. First up, the February Baby Sweater:

February Baby Sweater

This is my first completed project from the Knitter’s Almanac. I really love how it turned out and I am in love with the vintage green and white buttons floating on that sea of pink lace and garter stitch. The yarn came in a box of odds and ends Heather sent me a while ago and I think it must be her sportweight sock. It was wonderful to work with and I love the color. The only problem is that with all the baby gifts I’ve needed to make — seven total — only one of the babies has been a girl and I didn’t know she was going to be a girl until she arrived and had already made her something else. So, this little sweater is going into the granny gift closet because surely more baby girls will arrive someday.

    Those buttons are PERFECTION! And it is too funny, because I just made a pink February Baby Sweater as well. Great minds knit alike.

    OK, I have some questions about this sweater. I would like to make one for MY February baby — and make the February Lady sweater for myself since I’m a February lady! — but I don’t have the book and have never knit anything by EZ before. So, are there different sizes? Or is it done by playing with gauge? How big would you say the finished sweater you made is (size-wise)? I’m thinking of making it for next fall/winter if that will work with sizing it. Of course by then Fiona will be about 9+ mos old.
