Not Just For Socks

The Baby Sweater Made From Sock Yarn is finished.

It's the 5-hour sweater, somewhat modified. I used the pattern from Cottage Creations' More Projects for the Community and Family.

Three strands of sock yarn (fingering weight) on size 10.5 (US) needles make a warm and cuddly baby sweater.

I wound up putting the buttons on the girl side and using these cute little flower-looking blue ones from the stash.

There wasn't much yarn left.

Yep. That's all. About a yard of each of the strands.

What I like about sock yarn for baby stuff:

1) it's wool; don't start about allergies, please

2) it's warm

3) it comes in lots of great colors

4) it's machine washable and dryer safe

What's not to like?

I think I'll use the other ball of Socka (light denim, remember?) to make a little pair of socks to go with the little sweater.

Or maybe I'll combine it with another color and do an encore of the 5-hour.

Penny Watch: She's looking a little wobbly and sluggish tonight. And she's been jonesing for more food since she finished her dinner (and Sparky's) earlier.

So I fed her again.

As long as it stays down, what can it hurt?

Oh my gosh! That sweater is lovely. I know some lil girl is going to be very happy.

Sending more hugs for you and the furbaby.
