August 2009

This is a very pretty little set for new babies of either gender (and so a bit of a lifesaver when the parents decide they don't want to be told what they're having until the big day).

The hat is a modified-to-match version of Erica Knight's Baby Beanie Hat from Simple Knits for Cherished Babies, which I've found to be a great fall-back collection.

I loved the Cashmerino Aran too, although (as you might expect from a Cashmere/Merino blend) it didn't do so well in the washing machine. The care instructions said 30 degrees, so I tried it at 40, and it felted slightly. Gah.

It still got a lot of wear, thankfully. The baby in question turned out to be a boy, by the way. I'm still unclear on what he'll be mostly wearing next winter, but I'm sure it will be fabulous...
