About that little knit jumper ...

Remember this jumper from my last post? The size was supposed to be for a one year old, but it turns out it fits three month old Lily now. In fact, it could be a couple inches longer.

My friend Rachel left a comment on that last post saying that a "one year old size" isn't really meant to fit a one year old baby. Sure enough she was right.

It was hot out last Sunday when this pic was taken, so Lily is wearing it as a summer dress.

Isn't she the most beautiful baby in the whole wide world?





I wanted to mention I've fallen in love with Knit Picks Harmony Wood Circular Needles. My local yarn store just started carrying them, so I took them for a test drive. Oh my. Not only are they cool-looking with waves of color, they are lightweight, sharp, and seamless.

I am really enjoying knitting in the round these days.

I think she is just beautiful!
Sizing for baby wear is always an adventure! I love the jumper as a little summer dress.

Thanks for the recommendation on the needles. I have their catalog in my basket and will have to see about ordering a set. I tried working with the bamboo yarn I have that splits so bad and realized my needles might be part of the problem.

Oh, isn't she adorable! She looks so cute in that little jumper -- it looks just perfect. And Yes, I DO think she's the most beautiful baby in the whole wild world. (It's a good thing I don't have any grandchildren now, 'cause you know, if I ever get them, THEY'll be the most beautiful LOL.)
