I finished my baby Fair Isle sweater! And just in time, too, because my baby’s giant head is already threatening to outgrow the neck hole. But, I suppose that’s most of the challenge with knitting for babies- getting the project done before they outgrow it.
Anyway, pictures! Here he is, beginning what I’m sure will be an illustrious career in knitwear modeling. (He looks a little grumpy because he just got up from his nap and I immediately shoved his head through this slightly-too-tight neck hole.) Otherwise, this sweater fits pretty well. It’s even got some growing room lengthwise in the arms and the body. Perfect!I love the way my speckled, variegated and hand-dyed yarns all play off each other, making the yoke look more complicated than it was. And, of course, I love the colors. I think they look especially pretty with the boy’s bright blue eyes and adorable pink cheeks. (But I think most things look especially adorable on him.)Have you done any knitting for kids lately? How did it go? Did you manage to finish while the kid still fit in it?
