The first “girl” knitting project

A little aqua, lacy flower hat for a newborn, being modeled by a grapefruit. (A melon would have been better sizing, but the grapefruit was what I had in the fridge.)

Such a fun, satisfying, excellent knit.

I had to go and find new projects for my ravelry queue – all of the baby sweaters I had were for boys. It is so fun to be able to go and pick out girl patterns, too. A whole new world of knitting potential. And while that blocks, here’s the start on the new Garter Stitch Baby Kimono.

It’s just a lot of knit stitch for many more centimeters, especially knit in sock yarn. But the yarn is amazing. (My first time knitting with Madelyn Tosh, and now I see what all the fuss is about – so soft, and such subtle, sophisticated color variation. It’s lovely to work with.)
