Too Cute for Words
I haven't only been starting things lately; there's been a little finishing around here, too. (Just a little, of course. Nothing to upset the natural order of things.)
There's something about the idea of little boys in vests. And since this one could be made with some stash sock yarn I had lying around, resistance was futile.
Little Boy Blue Pattern: Baby Cable Vest from Debbie Bliss' Simply Baby
Yarn: Fortissima Cotton Fingering Weight in denim (a light blue) and a bit of white cotton leftovers for the edgings
Needles: US 3 Addis for the bulk and US2 Brittany Birch dpns for the sleeves Notes: I think this is the 12 month size, and it took not much more than 50g of the blue, much less than I expected. Also, I added the white contrast edges for fun, and because I had the white. Why not?
Best Thing About This Project: I liked it so much, I immediately cast on for some matching two-tone booties from the same book. Irresistible!
