Awhile back…maybe in May….I knit the Katja baby top from knitty. The baby that it was intended for was going to be between a six month and twelve month size this summer, so I knit a size between the two. Now that purple is finally one of the project spectrum colors, it seems appropriate to finally post it.
For the project, I used two balls of Rowan Cotton Jeans in the hemp colorway. I really liked working with the yarn, although it seems like an adult sized garment in the same yarn would be a bit heavy.
Despite my tinkering with the pattern, it is still a bit big on it’s recipient. Since she is currently growing faster than a weed, I’m sure it will fit soon. If you look at the picture, you’ll also see the bee set from magknits that I knit for her before she was born. Both booties should have a ribbon around the ankle, but she ripped off one of the ribbons on her flight down. The other ribbon was torn off about fifteen minutes later. I guess I need to work on my sewing skillz.
