FO: Red "Silky Wool" Baby Set
I am knitting for Elaine's baby boy, due in July. She's very a special young woman. Elaine and Todd have a two yr old girl, Audrey, who's eagerly awaiting her baby brother!

Here is set #1. It is knit with Silky Wool, Bristol Red. Yeah, it's handwash only...
but Elaine will gladly do it. She's the type that appreciates fine knits.

I think this pattern is okay for a boy. It is shown as a uni-sex sweater. I think RED is nice for a boy...and the Silky Wool gives it a rustic appearance, rather than a soft sheen. I hunted like crazy for the 3/8" buttons. Finally found them today at a Joann's Etc.

The set has two hats...one for newborn, the other for about 6 mo.
I made the small hat first...and then thought: "Oh no...this won't fit for long!"
So, I made another hat. I just hope that when the jacket fits, there will be a matching hat that fits. I'm out of practice with sizing baby heads!


The jacket and hats took just shy of 4 skeins of Silky Wool.
The pattern is an old time leaflet that I only have a bl/wh copy of!

I can't see the picture but I do definately approve of red for boys. It's my very favorite color. Good idea to make two hats!
