For the first time in my life, I knitted a guage-checking swatch.

And suffice it to say, what I’m knitting and what the pattern calls for is two very disparate knits.

But, if my calculations are correct, the end result will be a jersey that will fit a very┬átall newborn. And all the newborns I’ve encountered (yes, both of them) have been too tall for the standard clothes. And this baby that I’m knitting for now has a very tall, slim mommy. I’m counting on genetics here a bit.


Working with baby wool is the best! I don’t know why they bother making other types. I know I’m not going to bother buying non-baby soft wool in the future. Not that I need to buy wool, ever. My stash is threatening to take over my cupboard completely.
