"ramro" baby sweater

purlyman's picture

So to go along with the "barn raising" baby quilt, I've done this sweater/cap set for the baby - due in June. The mother was my closest friend while in the Peace Corps in Nepal. The word for "good" or "great" or "well" in Nepali is "ramro" (pronounced rahm-roh). And to this day, if something tastes good, we'll say that we think the chef must've added a touch of "ramro" to the dish. Anyway, I decided I'd knit a "ramro" sweater. I mis-judged the size of the letters and they ended up just going all the way around the body of the sweater. Oh well. It's fun.

Agreed! Agreed! Wrapping the baby in "goodness" is almost like wrapping him in a prayer flag! So perfect! And your color choices are enviable! WOW! I really love what you have done.

I think you knitted in a little ramro into this sweater, and I think the lettering size is perfect.

Your misjudgement is a designer element which (literally) wraps the baby in goodness! Beautiful work!
