FO Friday (cont.).

I put up yesterday's post, then realized I had forgotten the biggest project that I had just finished. Tonight Smokey and I are going to a baby shower, and this is what I knit for the baby boy who will emerge next month.

Baby sweater

Yarn: Berrocco Vintage leftovers from the multicolored socks I made last winter. Colors are Douglas Fir, Chana Dai, Tidepool, and Black Cherry. The yarn is 50% superwash wool / 50% acrylic, so it is warm AND machine washable, not to mention fuzzy and soft. All that seemed important to me in a baby garment.
Needle: Addi Turbo US#6.
Pattern: Baby Brights, 12 month size.

This is a great pattern for a top-down raglan; I quite like the way she used short rows at the neck. The pattern has a pattern stitch on the lower  part of the sweater, but I thought the stripes were busy enough so I did it all in stockinette.

More on the shower tomorrow

    Lovely!
    Good call on the size – the baby will be able to wear it for more than 5 minutes before he outgrows it…
