Knitted with one skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted, which is a superwash yarn, so great for babies.
I've just got to sew the ribbon on - I'll wait and see if it's a boy or girl first, I think.
I made a couple of adjustments to the pattern (just small ones!)
It's knitted from the bottom back upwards in one piece. When I reached the point where you divide for the neck I didn't start increasing for the sloped fronts as directed, but knitted straight, with no front shaping, for about an inch. I also didn't cast off for the sleeve shaping in steps, but knitted short rows then cast on all the sleeve seam stitches in one go. If I were to knit this again, I'd also cast on the whole sleeve length in one go and short row for the sleeve shaping.
And just because I thought my number of wips was getting perilously close to being less than five, I cast on for a few things.
This has been lying around since our trip to Get Knitted a few months ago.
It's a Noni Carpet bag. I think it's going to be bright!
Knitted in cascade 220 purchased from Get Knitted.
I've also, as predicted, succumbed to the Lizard Afghan. Only one square, to see how it knits up! This first square was knitted from oddballs, though all of the same colour. This might be an interesting blanket to knit in plain yarn, using an assortment of colours.
Isn't it marvellous? The bubbly look should disappear on blocking.
