Knit: Bronwen's Baby Sweater

A new little baby will soon be born, and everyone knows that babies are born just so we can knit for them! The new mommy doesn't know I am making it, though now I guess the secret is out! I just had to share this fabulous sweater as soon as it was off my needles.

This is the "Sock" It to Me (For Girls) baby sweater from Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders. This pattern was excellent.

A combination of simplicity and a hint of detail made it a quick and fun project to make and a beautiful project to give.

I have once again made use of some of Aunt Tillie's buttons that perfectly compliment to strands of pink in this multi-yarn.

The Jawoll Cotton Aktion sock yarn was beautiful to work with. I love the neutral browns, tans, and greys mixed with light pink and blue.  I am sure it was not intended to be used for babies, but something about it really screams "modern baby" to me.

I will definitely be making another one of these - perhaps I will even have time to complete one for my own sweet model before it gets cold here in Texas. And Bronwen, I promise I will mail it quickly - I don't want to fall too much in love and keep it for myself :)

  1. It looks beautiful, but then it might be the perfect little model! I can't wait to see pictures of Bronwen's little one in it :-)

  2. Gorgeous! And...the sweater is not bad either :)

  3. "Modern Baby" You've just coined a new term and a new style. This will be appearing in all upper-end stores. The word is out.

  4. Wow! That turned out so beautiful. Clare is a beauty in it.
