Think Pink!

pink

Jackie is expecting a baby girl at the end of the month, and I’m pumped to knit something PINK. There are a lot of boys in my world, but not many little girls, so pink it shall be. I’m planning to knit the February Baby Sweater from Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitter’s Almanac, the inspiration for the February Lady sweater that I’m knitting for me. Yes, gull wing lace is firmly ingrained in my memory now; I might as well make the most of it! The yarn is Sublime baby cashmere merino silk dk, and it’s soooooo soft. And it’s machine washable. Winner!

    Baby sized = instant gratification. After you’ve been knitting on the Lady Sweater, you’ll be AMAZED at how quickly the baby one goes.

    Enjoy!

  3. Your Knitter’s Almanac looks as well read as mine. I love that book. Beautiful pink yarn and it will look really good in that sweater. How are you liking the lady one? I already have the yarn for mine. Oh, I tagged you on my blog.

  4. I can’t wait to see it…. the yarn looks beyond soft. And, I love little girls….

  5. As to meezermeowmy, it’s infant gratification! Yarn feels yummy. Darn it, I may have to take up knitting! But I need to cook to keep up my blog…

  6. MMM that yarn looks yummy. Well it is PINK and we all know I LOVE pink, lol

  7. How exciting to get to knit something pink instead of blue! People have told me to try knitting baby sweaters first because they knit up so quickly and are good practice before trying an adult sized sweater. That yarn looks really soft, do you find yourself petting it often?
