Pattern : Easy Baby Knits by Claire Richardson
Yarn : Sublime Merino Silk DK (slightly less than 1 skein)
Voice 1 (aka Angel Voice) - "ohhh this is going to be so squishy and cute"
Voice 2 (aka Demon Voice) - "isn't this yarn kinda hot for our weather?"
Voice 1 - "a little, but it's quite light weight so it shouldn't stifle the baby"
Voice 2 - "it's too small, how are the baby's hands gonna stretch in that"
Voice 1 - "most babies curl up their fingers, and anyway the yarn stretches"
Voice 2 - "baby will snag a nail in the loose weave and will probably end up yanking out her entire nail"
Voice 1 - "but look at those cutie matching ribbons I found in my stash that matches the yarn perfectly..."
Voice 2 - "what if baby chokes on the ribbon when it comes undone"
Voice 1 - ".....but, but.."
Voice 2 - "besides which, Mothercare sells those for like $10 for 3 pairs, you're gonna take forever to make them"
Voice 2 - "and your mom will put those in the dryer and shrink them, then they definitely won't fit anymore... /evil snickering
Voice 1 - /concedes defeat and is silenced forever
Game, Set, Match - Demon Voice
And I thought that knitting baby items would be easy...
