Before O was born, I created a list of baby sewing and knitting patterns I liked. I was feeling kind of panicked about all the ideas out there. And the more time I spend on Flickr, Ravelry, and reading blogs, the more fabulous ideas I want to try. I love it and am completely overwhelmed at the same time. Am I the only one who feels this way?
So as soon as O was born I knew a little vest was one of the first things I wanted to make. This is the pebble vest pattern, using some Cascade 220 superwash yarn. I did some knitting last weekend while at my parents’ beach house. Knitting with a baby snoozing next to you on the couch is quite lovely.
I finished the vest up this week with some little wooden buttons. I used the recommended needle size but this ended up feeling quite small (maybe because O is rather huge for a newborn?). It fits right now but probably not for much longer. I’m hoping for some cool weather soon so we can get a little wear in the next few weeks.
And I’ll have to make another larger one soon, because babies in little vests are so sweet. I just want to sit around and kiss his huge cheeks!
