Lost in a sea of yarn and needles. Lusting after handmade socks and all things lacy

 

Time Out From Our Regularly Scheduled Sock

This is the Baby Kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting. I used Bernat Cotton Tots. I used the crochet cast on and slipped the last stitch of each row, to give a neater finished to the end of each row. And to match the bind offs at the neck and later the hem. I did the yo two stitches from the edge in hopes of keeping a bit of stability to the finished garment. When I do this pattern again, I will do a YO, K2tog at the hem and the sleeve edge, so all the edges match.
I am having a lot of trouble working with the cotton yarn. It seems each stitch is a struggle. I switched to some metal needles which I think work better, I just wish I had a circular needle in the correct size.
It is an easy knit aside from the cotton yarn, and looks really cute. I am going to skip the ribbon ties and use snaps. If I can drive snaps into the thick cotton. If not I will use a flat button.
Measurements so far
Across the back 9 inches
Length from neck to bottom 6 1/2 inches
Length of sleeve from neck edge 7 inches
This is unblocked and mindful that my row gauge is always off.
