My sophisticate baby

My first for my last ;)

My Grand mother taught me when I was about 8. I loved doing that with her when I was a kid. But events in our life had me stop a project whil it was on the needles, and forgot all a bout it. Longies have been the starting point of me knitting again (after finding that forgotten project still on the needles after my Grand ma passed away.) And then, I have knitted tons of things in the last few years. But I had not yet tackled shirts/cardigans.

I didn't know what pattern to try first, and I ended up trying this one. It was a good one to start with. Fast knit, easy pattern, and really cute on it's own

let alone on an adorable baby ;)

the only thing left is putting the buttons

and blocking the whole thing.

I used cascade eco yarn for this project. I like it good enough, but I think I would have rather something with a little silk in it. The eco yarn is very economical though, so definetly something to keep in mind!

off to make some boxes!


  1. oh, beautiful! let us know the pattern you use for the longies, too, yes?

  2. Thanks!

    For longies, I have tried LOADS of pattern. I have to admit that now I use my own pattern that is a metling pot of all the little pieces that I liked of various patterns. But I think they are closer to the little turtle knits longies. That was the first pattern I used, it is easy to understand, and easy to knit. I also have to give credit to the wooly wonder pattern. It is also a great pattern, but I was not fond of the design of the crotch. For the rest, I love it too.
    You cannot go wrong with either of those. :)
