A Little Bit of Knitting
This weekend I got a little bit of knitting done. Or maybe I should say I knit several little bits. These are for baby Allen (my sister in law's sister's baby boy) who is supposed to arrive in about 5-6 weeks. The green socks are in Dale Baby Ull and the red hat is knit in Wool Gatto. I am making some little red socks to match the hat, because you're really never too young to accessorize. Both yarns are superwash wool and very soft (Dalese, if you're reading this, it means you can just toss it into the washing machine). I'm trying to get everything together to send in the next week. I think the sizing on these is about 6 months or so (I figure all babies have oodles of stuff for when they're first born, but they don't get as much when they're a little bigger) but of course that will depend on how fast he grows. That's the great thing about knitting for babies - you can make stuff big and they'll grow into it eventually!
