This is not becoming a baby blog, I promise. In fact, this is actual KNITTING CONTENT.
I made the baby kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting.
Here it is blocking, in January:
Here it is, modeled by Spike at 2 days old:
And at four weeks:
I mention this because it is now too small, mostly due to the sleeves. If I had it all to do again, I would have made short sleeves.
(For those inquiring minds, the diaper is a Happy Heiny's size small in a monkey and palm tree print. Too cute!)
Edit, later in the afternoon:
Debbie asked how I fastened the kimono since I didn't use the pattern's suggestion of a ribbon. I bought two dinosaur buttons at Jo-Ann's and used the eyelet edge of the kimono as button holes. I just sewed them to the appropriate spots on the other side of the kimono so that when the kimono is on the holes line up with the buttons.
