Both of the Basic Ribbed Socks are completed and need blocked, so it’s time to cast on a new project. When I saw the new patterns from Kate Oates, I knew they would be perfect for our newborn. After all, it will be in the 80s here when he or she will be born, even in winter, so a fingering weight knit with short sleeves will be perfect. From the pattern collection, I am starting with the Kiss Me Romper and using Tosh Merino Light in Celadon and Silver Fox. They looked complementary (and gender neutral) in natural light, but I’m second guessing myself under artificial light. I’ll have to check again before I get too far into the project!
