Basketweave Knit for Baby
This little number is where the bulk of my spare minutes in July were directed. I carried it with me back and forth to school or whenever I went somewhere that I wasn't driving and would relax to a few rows in the evenings.
I came up with a fairly straight forward basketweave knit pattern and did the borders in a seed stitch.
I used size 9 circular needles (36" because of the size of it) and Sensations Simplicity yarn in Cream (3 big skeins).
It's a little bigger than a square yard and it turned out super soft. I'm kinda in love with it. It has a lovely drape to it and it washed perfectly. And the project really turned me back onto knitting, not least of which because it seems easier to steal a couple of minutes here and there and on the fly with my schedule than it is to get into my sewing room.
This one is also for a boy, but hasn't been gifted yet, so I can't say more than that. Can't wait to get it in the mail! I'm linking this up to lots of the fab parties in my Link Parties tab, including Met Monday!
