More baby

Posted by Nanc


Well, not about my bebeh. Just knitting. For another baby.

This sweet set, bolero and booties, is for the new Kelsey Marie, born to my best friend from high school. I don’t see Krista much (there’s a bit of distance between CO and TX), but every time we talk or email it’s just like we’re 17 again and the friendship comes rushing back!

This is my second Baby Bolero that I’ve knit, and I still very much enjoy the pattern. (First here.) I used L.B. Cotton Ease in pink (from my stash!) and taupe. The booties are the Simple Shoes, which I found the pattern on Ravelry. (Yeah, it’s good for that.)

This makes for a good, warm-weather set that can be washed and dried with the regular clothes. No special laundry instructions for the new mommy.

(I, however, fully expect to have a hand-wash laundry load for my bebeh. There’s so many warm wool, alpaca, and cashmere yarns that I want to spoil cheerio in.)

    Was that a not so subtle hint that your knitter friends better be knitting for your cheerio?
