Just for Baby

When I found out my brother's friends were expecting their first I went searching for the "perfect" baby knitting book. Special Knits by Debbie Bliss and the Velvet-Edged Jacket pattern caught my eye. I was originally planning to make a smaller size in a nice denim color of Baby Cashmerino and purchased that at the same time. However, every time I looked in the book, which was often, I was drawn to the original color used in the photo and purchased that to use instead.

I'm taking a much needed break from the shawl and this projects rhythmic progression of stockinette stitch is just the ticket.

I'm in the process of catching things up and would like to recognize the following as a

Donna of Confessions of a Yarnaholic. Whom I met by chance and has the most creative crafting families I've ever met.

Theresa of Knitting Nonpareil who keeps us entertained with photos and stories about her grands. Are you moved in?

Stash expeditioneer Yargineer whom is a member of the wonderful SC Knitting Guild in Greenville and was a very patient chaffeur for a few of us at the knit-in.

Not five as the others I wanted to list have have already been nominated. A toast to all "Rockin' Girl Bloggers."

First...OH MY GOSH! ME?? Thank you for the RGB recognition. That's really cool.

Second, that little baby sweater is so cute. It does seem like the perfect break from knitting lace.

That lace piece is quite the mistress! Knitting for a baby sounds like just the right thing for a nice breatk.
