Bambino #1

| | Comments (1)

I finally did some last minute finishing as bambino #1 came into the world about a week ago. So far, I've only got photos and have not seen the bambino in person, but I sent along the finished knit with his grandma.

Baby knits, oh so cute!

Pattern: Elizabeth Zimmerman's February Baby Sweater from Elizabeth Zimmerman's Knitter's Almanac
Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot in Rich Red
Needle: #5 US 24" needle

Pattern: Saarjte's Booties [pdf]
Size: Large (but knit on 3mm needles to fit a newborn)

Yes, these photos were taken at a stoplight on the way to gift them. I just picked up the buttons the night before and finally found a tapestry needle that fit in the buttonholes. And yes, I only made two buttonholes. I forgot the others...


so cute, and so red. I'm very partial to the red!!! Like you, I am a wimpy Californian about the cold. I've had my ski clothes on for the last couple of months (and wooly handknits, of course!)
