Then I found a lovely pattern for my new granddaughter Brielle called Seamless Yoked Sweater by Carole Barenys. It was easy and knit up really fast. I used a soft acrylic yarn for easy care from JoAnn called Sensations Cuddle Muffin. It is really lovely to work with. I also found a sock pattern online at Discontinued Yarns for a simple baby sock.
I'm looking forward to more baby knitting as these one grow up. I've also started collecting patterns and making lists of what I want to knit for my older grandchildren now that I have more time to knit.
