FO - Baby Kina sweater and Kisiizi booties
I made these for my DSD's best friend. Had a heck of a time choosing yarn because apparently she wanted muted blue or brown. I told her that there are a million different colors of yarn in those colors. We decided on this blue. Baby is a girl and I'll post a pic of the baby in them if I get one. I suspect they'll be a bit large so it may be awhile.

Sweater - Baby Kina
Yarn - Jeannee Worsted

This is a great pattern, but I didn't like the way she did the sleeves. I put them on waste yarn and did them like regular sleeves. I also used a 7 stitch border instead of 8 and changed the button hole to be more centered. You can't tell from the photo.


Booties - Kisiizi Booties
Yarn - Jeannee Worsted

Great seamless pattern. No mods that I recall, but I did have to figure out that you slip the stitches differently for each side of the sole.

They're both beautiful, Jan. The sweater made me go "oh . . ." , it's truly sweet.

My gosh, you achieve totally perfectly even tension!

Both are darling patterns. I love the edging on the booties cuff.

The only thing I dislike more than knitting booties,
is knitting them on DPNs.

I actually hear that all the time. I guess I'm one of the lucky ones who's purling is the same tension as my knitting.

I would prefer to do them magic loop or even two circs, but those were..uhhh busy in another project so I had to resort to DPNs. It's a small project so it wasn't too bad. I didn't have enough of that size at one point though so I through in a 5 and it worked out fine.
