Apparently February 10th (NI-gatsu TO-ka) is National Knit (NItTO) Day in Japan. It seemed to me that there was no better way of celebrating the day by sharing my very first sweater. Sure its only baby-sized, but its a sweater, its my first one, and I happen to think its adorable!
The yarn, Debbie Bliss's Baby Cashmerino is delicious. It is lovely to knit with and the resulting knitting is soft and thick with a really nice give to it.
The pattern from Debbie Bliss's Baby Cashmerino 2 was minimal at times which made it a little tricky to figure out. Once figured out, however, it was super easy. The resulting sweater, while simple, is still adorable.
Given my inability to tie a nice bow, the hardest part of the whole project was tying the perfect bow on the front!
I finished the sweater a few days ago, the very same day that the little one it was intended for made her entrance into the world. I hope it keeps her warm and safe, and I wish her, her parents and her elder brother love, health, and much happiness. Happy Birthday Baby R!
