Pattern: Matinee Coat from Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, 4 skeins Color 600 (vintage pink) and remnants of 003, deep chocolate brown.
Needles: Addi Turbo, 3.25mm and 3.0mm, both 24", Knit Picks Harmony DPN's, 3.25mm
Modifications: I knit this little gem in one piece, from the bottom up, doing a 3-needle bind-off at the shoulders. I picked the stitches for the sleeves up and worked them from the top down, reversing the shaping. It was much, much easier than having to seam 5 pieces! The edging is just a very basic crochet edging.
Time to Knit: June 12 - 22, 2009
You may remember my marathon baby knitting session during the week my girls stayed with my parents. Well, I finished the sleeve quite a while ago, but then only added the crocheted edging a week or so ago. I've emailed the Mom, and my plan is to hold onto the jacket until the baby is born. I want to deliver this in person....especially as the Mom is one of those old friends with whom I really want to reconnect. She completely agrees, and we have tentative plans to get together a couple of times after baby arrives. I'm on pins and needles, because baby is due any moment now!
