finished objects

the mountains and the sky

I finished the baby vest I knit for my friend and his wife who are expecting – the Garter Stitch Baby Kimono by Joji Locatelli. It was all stash yarn, and it’s all either linen or superwash wool/sock yarn for ease of care. The linen is a little stiff but I think this will just be worn over other clothing so it should be fine even if it’s not, like, cashmere soft (or will it? I’m pretty ignorant about babies). I love the way the stripes worked up, because it kind of reminds me of the skyline by the mountains.

The baby is actually a girl, too! I knitted this without knowing the sex of the baby, but I had a feeling it would be a girl. Well, I’m sure the baby will be drowning in pink stuff so a nice blue vest might be just what the doctor ordered. I think this would look so cute over a white dress.

(Jk I’m just doing my part to smash the patriarchy >;) )
