Pretty in pink


baby girl gift set in pink

This was a yarn-driven project – I found this yarn at Coastal Yarns in Cannon Beach and thought it was so beautiful, I bought it, even though it’s sock yarn and I’ve sworn off socks (they take too long, on too small of needles, I hate doing the second one, and then no one appreciates them because they’re on my feet!) I jumped on Ravelry to find projects that would show off this yarn, and here’s what I came up with (all newborn size):

Yarn: One skein (plus a little of the second skein) of Knit One Crochet Too Crock-O-Dye, color #271 (candy).

Hat: Babies’ hat (featured in Prima July 2009) on US 2 needles

Booties: Saartje’s booties on US 2 needles

Dress: Dress with eyelets in Debbie Bliss Baby Knits for Beginners, on US 2 and 3 needles

The booties are amazingly small – no longer than my big thumb – and I knit them in less than an hour, but my favorite is the hat, because of the trim and the flower – I think it would be better shown off in a solid color. The dress is knit in white in Debbie Bliss’ book – again, I think the solid color, especially the white, shows off the pattern and design better, it tends to get loss in the variated color here.
