I know I said I wasn’t doing these anymore, but this one actually works out. I hadn’t gotten a chance to post about the baby gift I designed for my niece’s little one. This will be a shower gift coming up soon. I know the foot is a little club like in appearance, hoping a good blocking will help that out. The chart is from a Drops garment. I inserted Latvian Braids at the top and bottom of the chart. Love the look of these! His Daddy is a hunter, so I thought this Moose was appropriate. The yarn is Encore from Plymouth purchased online from Knit Witts. Love their service! Dee Ann will contrast and compare the colors I am looking for and let me know what works. It’s hard to choose things online sometimes.
I do have to make a loop for hanging on this. I will likely just do a length of I-cord and call it done. The weight alone on this thing will mean they need a reinforced nail to hang it from! I lined the entire leg with green and red to avoid catching fingers and edges on the inside of the leg. There are a lot of long floats on this baby! Especially around the moose.
OK, off to finish work on the blanket for Hank and a sweater for Sophia. And then I just have a baby snuggly, a baby sweater, and 2 baby hats to make. All before the end of the year. Plus, a few cowls and 2 shawls for me. Not sure I can fit it in before Dec 31st, but I will try!
