View Full Version : fo: first sweater

11-07-2007, 02:24 PM
Ok I started this sweater late Sunday night and just finished it! Well I still have to buy and sew on 2 buttons but you get the idea. It used 43 oz of sock yarn on size 1 needles. I used this (http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/babysweragcard.htm)pattern and really enjoyed knitting it. I'm hoping it will fit her soon after birth, along with her amethyst socks. I included a sharpie marker in the photo to try to give you some idea on how small it is. I'm so tickled it turned out so well! This is the first sweater I've ever knit.

So cute!! And wow, how tiny is that!? I always forget how little my babies actually were (and one of them was less than 6lbs at birth!)

Love the colour. Very nice.... and only 27 days until you can put it on a REAL baby instead of using a marker for a baby, lol. OK I wish you a lot of luck with your upcoming arrival. Just in time for a new angel at Christmas time. Best wishes!

The sock pattern is mine, it's on my blog-just click on the purple sock in my signature.
I forgot to mention that that's 100% merino wool, the only thing is that it has to be hand washed-o well.

Knitqueen: my other 2 kids were both under 6 lbs, one was 5.13 and the other just made 5 lbs even. Last week the midwife said she thought that this one was about 4.12-so we'll see...

Aaaaaw, that is *so* beautiful!! And CUTE!!! How tiny!! My DD was born very early and she would have SWUM in that, lol. She's caught up now though :mrgreen:

I hope we can see a picture of your sweet little girl in her new sweater and socks someday soon! She'll be beautiful in them!

Thanks for all the compliments, I can't wait to put her in it-just don't want her born 'too' early that happened with the last one and I don't want to be scared like that again.
Congrats Gamerchic! knitting baby stuff is so much fun.
