Baby's First Handknit Item

Shrugs and Kisses by Maggie Baird

Yarn: Caron Simply Soft in Mango, which matches perfectly with her stock dress
Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm)
Started & finished: May 4

Very quick knit. It was just a parallelogram. It could have been wider, as she doesn't really have sleeves. In fact, it's only sewed together by one stitch. And there's an odd roll in the back, but it fits!

Knitting for Blythe is instant gratification.

Love it! I also love all the different oranges together; orange is one of my fav colours!
Zoe and I will be sending Coral her goodies out this week sometime ;)

Thanks! Orange is one of my favorites, too. Probably why I love the orange haired dolls.

I have two packages for you AND THEN I can get some stuff for Zoe out. Whew.
