However, the idea of knitting for babies has always been very appealing to me, for a few reasons:
- Short knitting time. In the time it takes to make a sleeve for an adult, you can whip up a full jumper for a baby.
- Cheap(er) yarn. Babies, and the parents in their life doing the laundry, don't have much need for luxury alpaca. Cotton, acrylic, or blends of the two with small amounts of animal fibers are all that's needed.
- Mistakes are okay. Not huge mistakes, mind you - I will never give up my borderline obsession with mistake-free knits. But little mistakes, such as an incorrect stitch or cable twisted the wrong way, are just going to end up with baby barf on them at some point, anyway.
- Bad colors choices are okay. See #3.
Stay tuned for further baby knits!
