Six Weeks

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.

hi. I'm in the process of finishing up a few of the kimonoes for a friend who had a baby boy on Sunday. I noticed you have the kimono closed with something other than a ribbon. I don't want to use ribbons on mine. Would you please tell me what you used? Thanks!

oh, and your baby is adorable!!!!
