We interrupt this non-stop Oscar Party blogging to bring you any other project I’ve been working on. In this case, it’s knitting project #2: a newborn baby pouch. What can I say – it’s so stinking adorable – I couldn’t stop myself! Thank goodness I have friends who have newborn babies and love me enough to put up with totally ridiculous and worthless gifts! I really can conceive of no actual purpose for this item aside from these delightful pictures of Hilary’s new baby. I did however suggest it could potentially be used as a mullet style knitted cap if push comes to shove….I’m still waiting on those pictures. I’ll keep you posted. But in the mean time, enjoy these yummy baby shots instead!
I found the Buttoned-up Baby Wrap on Ravelry and ran right out to pick up some new yarn and the chunkiest circular needles I’d ever seen! I knitted a project in about 2 days, which for me is like a land speed record compared to the easy baby blanket which took oh, um, like 5 months. ya know.
I did have some trouble with the reductions at the end – I kept ending up a few stitches off from the pattern, but I made it work. Since it’s not going to get heavy use, I think we’re going to be OK.
Thanks to Hil for sharing the pictures!
