The summer really feels like the time for small projects to me. I still knit sweaters and blankets, but I really enjoy something small and accomplis-able. A lovely accessory, a wee toy, or my current favorite: a baby sweater.
If you haven’t knit a baby sweater before I highly recommend it. If you have never knit a sweater it is a perfect chance to try out your skills on a mini version. Or perhaps you are a regular sweater knitter, in that case, this mini sweater will fly off the needles in no time. The yoke of a newborn version can be accomplished in a matter of hours instead of days or weeks.
We just received a new book, Rowan Just Baby. It has 18 patterns for any adorable little munchkin in your life. There are simple knits like Norton (perfect for a beginner) or something a little more complex like Potter. There are booties and mittens, a blanket, a bonnet, create your perfect baby shower set!
