Thanks to everyone for the very helpful yarn suggestions for baby knits! My urgency of casting something on just became a little bigger, because apparently my friends baby shower is in less than 2 weeks, so my needles had to start clicking.
One pattern that stood out for me while browsing Ravelry was the Petit Arc-en-Ciel cardigan, because I have the perfect yarn for the rainbow! You might remember the skeinbow I also used for my Rainbow Wanderer socks, and there’s still plenty left for making this pretty little yoke. I found a fingering weight yarn that is supposedly machine washable (Lana Grossa Cool Wool Baby) so I’m hoping this cardi will be a hit for the mom to be. In any case knitting this is making me HAPPY! Combined with the budging spring weather it’s difficult not to get cheerful from this project. And reallly, there’s no going wrong with a knitted rainbow is there?
Now I’m going to have to continue knit knit knitting to finish all of this on time, happy Sunday everyone!
You have some pretty amazing projects going on there!
Enjoy your knitting!
You do have an impeccable taste! I love every single thing you create – from your stunning photos to FOs!
the girl bunny in the dotted dress is what I’ve been making for baby gifts lately, too!!! (a couple of brand new moms, though, are getting blankets….if my yarn ever arrives!!!!!)
I am madly in love with the colors so bright and cheerful and fun!!! you can get it done in time!
So many adorable projects on your needles! That’s on lucky momma and baby girl.
You’re certainly going to be busy the next couple of weeks, but these knits look adorable! I love all the bright and cheerful colors you’re using 😀
LOVE the rainbow yoke! It’s going to be a fabulous baby gift, especially when paired with the bunny.
The purplish main backround color is just perfect. Good job.
such fabuous pattern choices!! the yoke is already so fantastic. And good call on the knitted bunny! Ive knit a lot of toys and they are extremely well received as gifts. Kids and grown ups seem to love them.
You are rather brilliant with pattern and yarn choices! That yoke makes my heart swoon. 🙂
The cardigan truly is a happy knit! I like the colour progression in it already.
