March 2011

This gorgeous little baby vest came up for testing about a week before one of my best friends was due to have her first baby.

Having given a bit of thought to the issue of what I could knit for a baby born in March which would actually come in useful, I'd originally settled on Anouk, but given how much Malabrigo Sock I had left over from Folded I couldn't resist making her this little vest too.

Aubrey was fast, easy and fun to make. There was a bit of sewing up because the front and back are worked separately and then seamed, but not too much. I was really glad I got the opportunity to test it.

I love Malabrigo Sock as a baby yarn - it's machine washable after all, and very, very soft. And the colours are pretty funky too. I think one skein would probably be enough to make this and matching bootees and a matching hat, because I still have a little bit leftover.
