I recently purchased this great skein of super-wash Hand Painted Merino Wool from Madelintosh (It’s Tosh Vintage) at the Knitting Tree in Madison. I didn’t have initial project plans so I kept it in a drawer for a few weeks. After I saw someone else post a picture of “Oh Baby! Baby Booties” (pattern available on revelry or ETSY) I knew that I wanted to knit them with this yarn! With the leftover knit I decided to make a baby hat with my own simple seed stitch pattern (knitting pattern coming soon!).
I have received many requests for baby items meant as gifts but I am never ready. Sizing is the main issue that has made me timid towards knitting children’s items. I have fears that items will be too large or too small. When I post baby items on my social media INSTAGRAM I get a lot of interest. My intention is to experiment more with tiny knits.
