Baby Kimono

I’ve got  a new project…. and some good news. Mr. A. and I are going to welcome our first neice/nephew to the family in September. How exciting?! So finally I get to knit baby stuff! I mean knitted items are cute when they are full sized but shrink them down to miniature and they are downright adorable. So taking the opportunity to repurpose the wool from my failed legwarmers I’ve taken on my first baby cardigan challenge. I found this lovely baby kimono pattern by Debbie Bliss free – ace! And so I got knitting.

It’s such a simple pattern, I would recommend it for anyone who is a bit daunted by the though of knitting a cardi. The pattern directions are mostly spot on (just keep an eye out when you do that second sleeve and cast off on the correct side). And together with a soft brown flecked wool I hope it suits a new born (bog/girl we’re not getting to find out. Makes things a bit more of a challenge). I still have some knitting to go, and then making up. I’m on the look out for a cute feature button for it. Can’t wait.
