Knitting for Babies

...




I forgot to share the photos of this silly little baby sweater I knit for my friends Paula and Aaron's baby boy. Yeah, it is an original design.




This was knit in a big tube to facilitate the colored knitting, and then I took scissors and cut open the sweater so that Paula and Aaron didn't have to try to cram a wriggling baby into a pullover. Cardigan are much more suitable for diminutive pirates.

Lisa, the sweater is adorable. How lucky he will be to have an original sweater creation from Lisa the artiste!

Love it! I've progressed all the way to a washcloth - it's slow going :)

It's so beautiful! But I don't understand how you can cut through the knit and not have it unravel like crazy.
have fun at the egg party we'll miss being there!

Successfully chopping up handknitting is a nerve-wracking magic trick.

It only works with "grabby"fibers like wool or mohair or alpaca.

(And you had better believe that I did a test-run before I took scissors to this sweater!)
