When i saw the babysack Ingrid knit, i got inspired and decided to try something similar for my colleague daddy-to-be and try stranding (aka Fair Isle).. I used some mohair-like 70% acrylic 30% polyamid i got from my grandma's stash with 3mm needles. This yarn is totally unfroggable! I didn't have a baby to put in it, so i used whatever there was :rofling:. It's made for 3-6 months sized baby.

Well, it took me about 2 months and i didn't knit everyday and it was fast, because it's mostly knit in the round so i don't have to purl:cheering::cheering::cheering:

Purdy: slang form of Pretty
If you stretch pretty out with a southern drawl, (or massachusets accent) it can come out sounding more like purrrrr-ty or purrrrdy.

and it IS Purdy

What a treasure!

I hope his wife will love it:roflhard:. Otherwise, i'll feel awkward. I hope she won't ask him "Is there a receipt with that, can i exchange that?":roflhard::roflhard::roflhard:People here are not used to hand knitted stuff:shrug:.

Thank you! I actually looked at what Ingrid made and the rest is from my head. I had to cast on a few times though lol. It was too much anyway and so the ruffles were great idea, because this yarn is horrible to frog. It's knit in the round, then i cast off half of the stitches and continued straight. When i got to the end, i didn't cast off, but folded and did kitchener stitch to achieve nice hood without too visible seam. And the design was mine - just calculated something that will fit the number of stitches i had...

Lord I am thick when I read such descriptions but I think you guys s very clever! I mean, you had a nice pattern in it and everything.

Has the boss seen the gift yet? I'd love to know his reaction.

Well, he's not my boss actually, he's our controller and his baby is due in the end of August, so i'm ahead and i won't show it to him before that, so it's sitting here in the meantime, waiting...
