Babies and knitting are a perfect match. After all, how many people were inspired to pick up their first pair of needles to create something beautiful for the new baby in their lives? With these tiny treasures, it's easier than you think to find knitting time in a hectic schedule. Purl away your morning commute (and enjoy the "oh-it's-so-cute" comments from your fellow passengers), knit during intermission, slip in a stitch or two between meetings. Like all projects in the Knitting on the Go series, baby knits are perfect for spare moments. Compact pieces - small in scale, big in creative outlet - that you can take along with you.
What could be more portable than a baby sweater? They take up little space, require a minimal investment of time and materials, and their small size makes them perfect for experimenting with stitch patterns and colour combinations that might seem overwhelming in an adult-size sweater.
Better yet, these projects are fun to make. Whether you're knitting for your own child or someone else's, there's a design (or two, or three) on the pages in this book sure to delight every little one - not to mention the grown-ups. Use the yarns suggested in this book as a starting point and let your creativity soar. Search your stash for suitable odds and ends or take the plunge and splurge on a ball or two of something truly gorgeous. Experiment with fibre, colour, and texture (just be sure to make a test swatch for gauge) and stitch up a little style.
Pick a project, pull out your needles and get ready to knit on the go!
