FO - Baby Kimono Gift

I knit this for my friends Mark and Nicole, who are having their second child sometime in November.

I also picked up a bunting bag for the newborn, to help keep her cozy in their house this winter. I usually find it a bit on the chilly side, so maybe this'll help keep the little one toasty. :)

Gift Update

So, I was finishing up the second sleeve of the Baby Kimono I am working on for Mark and Nicole's baby, and I just realized I won't have enough yarn to finish it. Piss. Looks like I'll have to grab another ball of Easter Basket from Michael's this weekend and sew everything up before the baby comes. That's okay though.

In the meantime, I've decided to start working on that Christmas stocking for Nick. I need to figure out which charts I'd like to include on the stocking and how large it's going to be. Obviously, I don't want to make it too big because I don't want to spend a zillion dollars every year on stockings... but it can't be too small, either.

More on this later. Thought, in any case, that it was time to make an update.

FO - Baby Kimono

I can't believe I didn't write about the construction of this sweater. It is SO easy to make! I only had to unravel small parts of the sleeve due to miscounting, never due to stupid mistakes. In fact, I made NO stupid mistakes while knitting this. It is soft, and it looks beautiful on him. He's just too adorable :)

Here are the finished object pictures:
