And Here's Bean!
As promised, I have pictures of Bean.
He's wearing the sweaters I knit, and he's warm and toasty. This little sweater knit as quickly as the infamous 5-hour Baby Sweater. It's a raglan cardigan, called Going Home Outfit I left off the buttons, and Bean doesn't care. The newborn size really fits a newborn. How cool!
Yeah, that's me, the one with bad hair. Just look at the baby, he's the cutie.
Diametrag gave me a skein of Bernat Denim, and while I was at her house I made it up into a nice blue sweater. It's bulkier yarn than what I like to use for babies, but neither Diametrag nor Bean seems to care. When he's warm, he sleeps longer and she gets to rest a bit. The sleeves are a bit short, I had a 100 gram skein of yarn, and almost ran out. I skimped a bit on the sleeves, and managed to get it done.
Three more hats ready for the hospital, that's six in the bag and 1 on the needles.
From left to right, the patterns are, Fancy Slip Stitch Rib, Little Basket Weave, and Uneven Rib.
The Fancy Slip Stitch Rib is a multiple of 5, and I cast on 70 sts. Next time I'll cast on 75 because the slip stitch tightens it up a bit. The Little Basket Weave stitch is very pretty, but I'm not happy with my decreases at the top. Next time I'll try to continue the rib a bit while I decrease.
Uneven Rib is my favorite so far. It's stretchy and will fit many sizes.
