I had the rare and unique opportunity recently to knit for an upcoming baby. I’ve not done a whole lot of that, as I think your average person doesn’t appreciate it all that much. But this project is for a fellow knitter, so I felt confident I could knit to her tastes. I know she likes noro yarns as well as lots of colors. So I found a lovely little jumper in a newborn size, got some noro silk garden sock, and totally went to town.
I knew this was going to be my main project on vacation since it was a secret and I couldn’t work it at home. And indeed, it was easy to complete in that time period. The pattern is Pepita which I think is irresistibly adorable. Modeled on my old favorite doll Miles.
I think the little socks are too cute and fun. The fabric is nice and thick making it practically a snow suit. Notice how I managed to make the legs match? That was quite a challenge, but I am glad I took the time to do it.
