In December, my family will head back to the USA to spend Christmas with my grandparents. This will be a 19 hour flight…during holiday time…with a 3 month old 😭. However, my grandparents are almost 90 and they really want to see the baby as she is the first great grandchild.
Since they live outside of Boston I am trying to knit up some winter clothing for all of us. Baby has about 5 sweaters so far. Yet, when I found Hosenmatz, I knew I had to use some of the gorgeous sock yarn I picked up this past summer in San Francisco.
I purchased Smooshy Petites in Cabaret from Firebird Yarns in San Francisco. This is a new yarn store to me since I moved away 2 years ago. The pants took almost 3 mini skeins. I love the variety of colors in this yarn and that it is oh so soft. As you can see the 3-6 month size is a bit baggy on her (she is only two months old), but I am sure she will grow into them in the next few months. I was left with a 1/3 of a skein of yarn, which will allow me to lengthen the pants as she grows.
I have to say I am a little jealous of these pants. They look perfect for lounging around in. Too bad I lack the ambition to embark on creating an adult sized version of them.
Until Next Time,
