Baby knitting…

Just finished this little cross-over baby jacket…

Hope this fits...

Hope this fits…

I used some pretty sock yarn (75% wool, 25% nylon) so nice and practical – and I have just enough left over to make matching booties…

I adapted a pattern I found in an old Phildar baby book – took a while to sort out the tension but its ended up about the same size as the original pattern.  It does look small – but I guess new babies are quite small 🙂

My next challenge is to see if I can knit this (or maybe a cardigan) top-down – the raglan shapings were fairly even – it’ll be fun to try!

Happy days…
