FO: Baby sweater, hat, and socks
Hi,

I have a few things to show. First, a baby set for my friend's new baby boy.

The pattern is Puerperium Cardigan, and the hat is just a basic matching hat. Sensational news -- I almost followed the pattern! The cardigan still missing buttons and has pins in it but I hope you get the idea



Also, I realized that when the raglan increase is made by kfb, kfb (side by side), not kfb, k1, kfb as I did for one of my sweaters, it looks better and lays flat.



Also, there are newborn size socks that I winged based on the fact that babies don't have triangular feet (that's how most baby socks on Ravelry looked like to me). Do you know what I mean, a very short and chubby sock? Cute, of course, but will it stay on?

Anyway, I made these with a shorter heel flap, I will report later on the fit. But I mostly made them as a keepsake anyway, if the parents choose to keep some baby items. Thanks for looking!

What a great baby set! I like the raglan shaping.
The socks look good to me but I'm interested to find out how the baby likes them. Awaiting your report.

Wow! You have been busy lately! What an adorable sweater/hat set, and those bitty socks are just precious. I wish I could knit as quickly as you!

Thanks! I don't think I knit fast but I surely knit at every opportunity. Two of my teachers at school don't mind me knitting during classes, AND I learned to knit without looking at my work -- yay! (Only stockinette st though but it helps). So now I can knit in class or during a movie at home, and it makes a difference.

You do such lovely work, this set is no exception. I love it. Those socks look like they should stay on, they may get used a lot before becoming a keepsake or even hand-me-downs! Keepsakes are nice, truly, but if I knit something I like to know it's actually used. Would you mind if they became hand-me-downs?

Good for you for almost following the pattern. I like both ways of increasing, the sweater you did is truly handsome and the increases added nice detail IMO. It's a matter of personal preference and now you know how both turn out you can do as you please, when you please. Hmmm, that sound a lot like your knitting habits already.
