baby knits

sweater for luca
socks for luca

When I was pregnant I really enjoyed knitting baby things, imagining the sweet babes that would one day wear them.  So many of my long distance friends were pregnant at the same time as me, and the excitement of anticipation was magical.  Here's a tiny newborn sweater and socks that I made for my friend's baby Luca, who was born a week after Iris.  The sweater pattern is the same one I used for baby Eli, but this time I lengthened the body and changed the shape of the sleeve.  I used this sock pattern but made the toe with this technique and did a 3 needle bind off.  Baby socks do not stay on baby feet!  But they sure are cute.

Luca wore this sweater almost everyday his first few months. It's just about perfect. Now we have it on one of his teddy bears. You are a talented lady:)
