There's a Rocket in My Pocket

Here is the next in a line of projects I have finished lately. It confirms my love of baby clothes. They are unapologetically cute and fast to knit. I whipped this up in a little over a week.

It's the Rocketry Sweater made famous by the Yarn Harlot. I can totally understand her obsession with this little number. It comes in a kit with several different colours of Dream in Color Classy. It might be one of my new favorite yarns. It is soft and blooms nicely with washing. The colours are amazing and one day I'll make a sweater out of this stuff. (T., I know what you're thinking. We're not ordering any more yarn right now. Maybe next week.)

I had little bits of yarn leftover so I whipped up a matching hat. I used the Umbilical Cord Hat as the base pattern and did the colour changes as suggested by the Rocketry pattern. Overall, a very cute little set.

I'm not sure who will be the baby who gets to model and keep this ensemble. I have quite a few sweaters that will fit the under 1 year old set and my little bun couldn't possibly wear them all. A few will likely be set aside for the happy day when some people in my life have new little buns of their own. (You know who you are.)

I don't usually knit baby clothes but that is so cute that I am very tempted. Note to self... must not be sidetracked!
