tiny kimono

More baby knitting!

Tiny was beginning to get a little grumpy here. This was the second garment I'd tried on her.

Yarn: More hand-dyed sock wool from Hay on Wye. Now identified by Anne as being from Wool and Willow and dyed by Jenny Cook.

Needles: 3.5mm (I think)

Pattern: Clementine's Baby Kimono by Diana Jones

Mods: None in the knitting. I finished it with three purple buttons (one inside) and sewn button loops instead of ribbons.

I like the construction of the kimono, though the ribbing will need blocking each time it's washed. It looks pretty cute, I think. Ribbons would probably make it more adjustable, they just seemed a bit fiddly.
