Baby Yarn Blues

Buck Strong's picture

Uggg .... I wish that I didn't have to worry about issues with wool and babies. The yarns out there are just not fun to work with and don't even get me going about the colours. I'm knitting for a baby due in summer and the mom really loves bold colours and hates pastels. Well, that leaves out a ton of yarn. I'm working in white.....yawn. Sorry, just had to get that out from under my kilt.

Well, I'm going with white and it's acrylic. It's not too bad.

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring-it was peace.

I'm working on a baby

I'm working on a baby blanket now --- off-white worsted plus a strand of boldly multi-colored sock yard. I just finished one in blue --- the parents were thrilled to have at least one thing that isn't pink (they are expecting a girl). If the yarn has "baby" in the name, just skip it and use something else!

Alpaca and silk are always good choices
