Baby shower

Today, we had a baby shower for Audrey.  She will have a baby very soon!  We all made a little something for her baby girl: hats, socks, blankets, toys, etc.  I made her a little Kira's hooded vest. I think it is such a cute pattern and it must be so practical!

Size: 12-18 months.
Needles: US 7 / 4.5mm and US 8 / 5.0 mm.
Color: Firecracker.
Start to finish: November 2011 - December 2011.
For: baby Anne-Sophie.
Notes: No modifications.

The plain part went very fast.  The star tweed stitch took a little longer than I expected, but it wasn't that long after all!  And so worth it!  I was just a little worried that it would not be ready on time!

Yes, it was the secret gift I was knitting!  The good part about it is that there were only the shoulders to sew.  The rest is all picking up the stitches and knitting with circular needles.

There is also the so famous seed stitch at the bottom and around the armholes!  So cute!

Finally, I cannot pass telling you how I like the yarn I used!  I think it is perfect for baby knits because it is wool and cotton.  So warm but without being itchy.  Mostly, it's superwash wool!  The colors available are gorgeous too!  It was difficult to choose!

I really recommend this pattern!

Have a great weekend all!

I loved test knitting that pattern, and the star tweed stitch was so easy to knit up. Your little vest looks fantastic in the red and white colors.
