A little knit for a little sister!

There’s nothing nicer than knitting for a new baby and when a good friend added #3 to her brood this summer I grabbed the opportunity to test some of the Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk and Cashmere Merino Silk that I’d not had the pleasure of knitting with before.

The pattern was an obvious choice; the Little Sister’s Dress is a free download via Ravelry (if you haven’t signed up yet, why on earth not! Be warned – it will revolutionise your life but may impact negatively on your knitting time once you get sucked into the amazing wealth of information and patterns!) and is just the sort of quick but interesting knit that I love.

Knowing that baby Celeste was likely to be adorned in strong, bright colours rather than traditional newborn white/pastels I delved into the wonderful rich shade cards and came up with a gorgeous plum for the main colour and some lovely lemon, teal and pink yarn for the accent ribbing. We think she liked it! Just perfect teamed with a vest and leggings on an English Autumn afternoon…

    • Yes! Definitely good for the blood pressure and nerves… I am just about to cast on a pair of socks – in the hope that just the act of knitting socks will make my feet feel warmer!
