A friend of Husband's is expecting their first girl, after 2 boys. So I went the pink and sweet route.
This is Helena from Knitty.com, Summer 2008, knit the smallest size in Takhi Stacy Charles Cotton Classic in Light Pink. It took just under 2 skeins with size 6 US needles.
garter stitch edges instead of the turned under picot hems.
one tie closure instead of 2
braided tie closures instead of garter stitch
Started June 13, 2008, finished July 29, 2008. I would have finished faster but I'm not a monogamous knitter.
I liked it so much, I cast on for another one, for a co-worker expecting another girl. This time, I'm using Plymouth Fantasy Naturale in pink. It's worsted weight, so I'm using size 8 US needles, but still following directions for the smallest size. I won't have enough yarn, so will probably do the yoke in pink and the skirt in white. Doing some stash busting this way.
Though the sweater's so small, it's hardly putting a dent in the stash.
