Yeah, I thought that make you sit up. No, I’m not. Someone else’s baby.

Many moons ago, when evenings were long and promise of sun a long forgotten half-memory, we received news of a new addition to the family. We knew his name before we knew him and it wasn’t long before my mama-hen brain started clucking. Sweaters? Bootees? Hats? Oh my.

I eventually settled on a simple kimono pattern, omitting the arms and knitting in stocking stitch rather than garter. Using some handspun merino and silk yarn this little vest has been waiting for months for its owner to claim him.
