Four reasons baby knits are the best

P1130877

1. They finish quickly. Even when the gauge is tiny.
2. Compared to adults there’s not the same angst over fit and sizing. A baby body is shaped like a sack of sugar with four sausages coming out of it, which everyone loves and the baby is not trying to disguise, so why fuss over a slimming neckline or the exact placement of waist darts?
3. Little knits are great stash-busters, especially for partial skeins (bring on the stripes!).
4.  A baby is too small to have an opinion about a garment or, let’s be honest, look anything but cute in it.

    Hah! I got to your site because awhile ago you did a pattern “Holl” that I really liked (and your pictures helped me muchisimas!)
    Your little dual citizen is beautiful, and the sweater is fantastic. Sounds like a tremendous experience. Viva Mexico y ¡que tengas un buen año!

    Wow, look at those eyes. And she looks like she is going to be totally blonde. The sweaters are also cute, of course, but the baby steals the show!

    Adorable baby and adorable knits! I totally agree with you about baby knits being the best. I’ve got three baby sweaters in progress right now for friends and family. I can’t think of anything sweeter than a baby in hand knits. 🙂
