Knitted Baby Kimono...

Brynwood Needleworks - Knitted Baby Kimono
I finished my baby kimono project yesterday. This happens to be a favorite pattern. I've made it four or five times, and I'm sure I'll make it yet again.
Brynwood Needleworks - Knitted Baby Kimono Label
When I make baby items, I use my "Brynwood Baby" label, with my Brynwood verse: "Mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow". It's a reminder of the potential in all of us, but especially in our hopes for our children.

The last one I made (before this one) was created for my great-nephew, Jace. I hand delivered it to his home when I was in Wisconsin.

He happened to be cranky that day - which is unusual for him - and he'd been fussing for about twenty minutes. I decided to put his new kimono on him, then and there. It must have felt like a warm cuddle to him. He immediately stopped fussing and settled right into his new gift. Within minutes, he was fast asleep. It must have magic powers!
Brynwood Needleworks - Kimono Yarn Content
I used Rowan Yarns Luxury Cotton DK, which is a blend of cotton, viscose and silk. I've used this exact yarn for every one of the kimonos I've made. It really feels wonderful and works up well.

I'll be listing this one up in my Etsy shop. I'm going to make a matching baby hat to go with it, and then I'll have it available.

I started my next portable project, too. I'm knitting a new pair of socks using a beautiful hand dyed yarn from Lorna's Laces. I'll show you when I get a little further along. Enjoy your Saturday and I'll see you tomorrow for my Sunday Scripture post.

A very cute kimono. I'm not surprised Jace settled with it immediately. That yarn sounds snugly.

Beautifully knitted in your signature style of grace. Your hand crafting hands are very adept at everything they create. Sunshine Smiles...
