Orange sophistication

May 30, 2012

You’d think I would have figured out by now that baby clothes go way faster than people-sized clothes and as such are a great instant-gratification knit. But this is in fact my first baby sweater. Made for a friend whose kid was in the hospital — I had this urge to do something, anything, and handknits are kind of like a hug, right? Hopefully it’ll be the right size at some point in the year when little S needs something warm.

This took one day to knit. No lie. One. I blocked it overnight and sewed on the buttons and then shipped it out right away. She posted on Facebook when it arrived and seemed very happy.

Baby Sophisticate, in Wendy Aran with Wool. I made the sleeves a bit shorter than the pattern suggested.

    such a beautiful little gift! I agree with you – there’s always an urge to do something, and this is definitely perfect =D
