I have started knitting for Baby MiH - of course I knitted the Lutin hat - but now we are talking proper clothes knitting. I had to take the plunge after seeing him in his Debbie Bliss duffel coat. It was also the opportunity to review some of the baby knitting books I bought. And I think I found my favourite - Tricots intemporels pour bebes, by Astrid Le Provost - who is also the talented woman behind Citronille patterns (the website is in both French and English).
I started by the brassiere raglan (I have some cute teddy bear buttons arriving soon!). It was also an opportunity to de-stash some sock yarn (as I don't actually knit any socks, I had to use it for something else).
I am knitting in 3mm, which is rather small for me but I think I can handle it considering Baby MiH size. I have made a couple of modifications already - ribbing edge and stripes (inspired by this one). There are some other projects in the book that are just too cute - classy and timeless (well intemporels, like the name of the book suggests)
My first ever jumper for Baby MiH, so far so good.
But I am dreading the construction already - some serious internet research will have to happen!
