knitted baby kimono
The baby kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting in Blue Sky Alpaca Dyed Cotton, color Shell. This has been a WIP for ages, slow going at first because I prefer knitting in the round to the knit/purl/knit business of going flat. And then I ran out of yarn. For the reference, this patter takes 1 full skein plus a very little bit of a second. I order this yarn from The Yarn Tree, and it took me a long time to get around to ordering that second cake (they cake it up for you). In fact, I wasn't inspired until they emailed to say it's 20% off all this month because of their anniversary. So I got this and yarn to make my boy a sweater.
Speaking of the boy, look how amazing this tower is:
and you know he's only two and a half...
One final shot, here are some custom wool wash soaps that I'm sending out for a mama today. Normally, all the wool wash soap that I make is unscented (unless you want the liquid). But she asked nicely and I made her some flavored balls. They look like candies and smell divine too!
