Knitting For Babies

I'm currently working on baby knitting. The great part is even if it's colour knitting it still goes fairly quickly because the sizes are small. I finished the sweater from the set I am making for my newest granddaugther. I love the way it came out. Now I'm working on the pants and I'm almost ready to start the hip increases and then I'll be ready to split and work on each leg separately. The lice pattern is easy since there is only one row of colour and then 4 knit rounds in the main colour. The only patterning in the pants happens close to the cuff on the bottom of each let. That makes it pretty mindless knitting and easy to work on the go because I don't have to worry about the chart.

This sweater is from the same book as the sweater above. I'm using Dale Baby Ull for this (the yarn called for in the pattern) and even though it's not as much of a colour contrast as in the sweater above, I still am very happy with the way it is knitting up. I just couldn't find girl colours that I liked that I felt worked as well together as these. Most of the Baby Ull the store had in stock were pastel or brown and I wasn't about to use brown. I'm now working on the first sleeve and I'm hoping I'll get at least one done by the weekend so I can cut the steeks. If I have enough yarn I will also knit a hat. I wanted one more ball of the purple and the shop didn't have it in stock. None of the stores that carry the Baby Ull had it either.

    The patterns are both in the same "book". I don't believe it's in print any more but it's Dale of Norway / Dalegarn #208, Dale Baby Klassisk.
